The aim of the icare project is:

  • to improve the level of soft and ICT skills of formal and informal caregivers
  • to improve the level of knowledge and skills of informal caregivers regarding patient care (basic skills) & their own health and safety
  • and, as a result, to improve the well-being of the caregivers and the quality of the services provided to the patients

The target groups of this project are:

  • Free Access to Open Educational Resources (MOOC) in four (4) languages
  • Improved knowledge and skills of both formal and informal caregivers through innovative learning approaches based to their needs.
  • Supporting integration Services (i.e. self assessment tools like mini games, a coaching session) for informal caregivers with lower levels of qualifications
