Co-mapping a strategy towards efficient Social Prescription for older adults in Europe

Social prescribing enables GPs, nurses and other primary care professionals to refer older adults to a range of non-clinical services, such as innovative person-centered designed digital solutions and citizens’ science life-long learning initiatives for promoting Active & Healthy Ageing and supporting older adults’ independent living. This endeavor, addressed to older adults, facing mental health problems or/and socially isolation, is designed to provide social, emotional and practical support through mental health and well-being improvement. This workshop will present person-centered approaches and ICT tools, developed in the context of H2020 EU projects, as well as different use-cases and policy status across the EU, focusing on innovative and holistic approaches to support AHA, aiming to:

  • Raise awareness about innovative procurement for digital transformation in healthcare & social prescription
  • Address drivers & barriers towards the social prescription in regional, national and EU level
  • Promote older adults & healthcare professionals’ knowledge and skills of exploiting digital solutions in collaboration with health professional organizations and academia
