Bridging the Gap between Technology and Care when Implementing Person Centred Technologies/Assistive Technologies and Information and Communication Technologies in Services

Article
The participants will receive an adult learning opportunity in the frame of lifelong learning. They will receive training with the focus on train-the-trainer method. The goal of the training is to implement the lessons learned afterwards in the organisation, so first line staff can benefit as well from the training. By offering new-technology based training and network opportunities, the training seeks to build a bridge between Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Person Centred and Assistive Technology (PCT/AT) on the one hand, and the social and health sector on the other hand. Special attention will go to the EU legal frameworks and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD). The training should facilitate the transition towards optimal use of technology in care and social support provision.
