Preparing health and social care workers to work with socially assistive artificially intelligent robots in health and social care environments

The IENE10 Project " Preparing health and social care workers to work with socially assistive artificially intelligent robots in health and social care environments" aims to produce a European Transcultural Robotic Nursing (TRN) Curriculum model and learning materials which will be suitable for health and social care workers and educators, not only within the partnership of this project but also internationally.

The target groups of this project are health and social care workers, students and educators recruited by the partner organisations as well as through the open access portal of the MOOC

Empowering Migrants And Refugee Families With Parenting Skills

The project “EMPOWERING MIGRANTS AND REFUGEE FAMILIES WITH PARENTING SKILLS”, aims to provide education and training to professionals and volunteers working with migrants and refuges in regards to parenting skills, health care of the family and psychological support.

It aims to enable them in providing support, knowledge and empowerment to migrant and refugee parents, which will help them to nurture, protect and educate their children under difficult circumstances.

The project focuses on expanding the existing Knowledge hub (Khub) (IENE6) for nurses, other health professionals and volunteers (http://ienerefugeehub.eu/). Khub is a center or focal point for exchange of knowledge, support, development, ideas.

Improving communication, intercultural and social skills for migrants who work as caregivers of elderly people in Europe

Population ageing is a long-term trend. The EU-28’s old-age dependency ratio is projected to increase from 28.8 % in 2015 to 51.0 % by 2080 (Eurostat, June 2016).

Providing long-term care in home, is proving to be a viable and cost effective alternative to institutional care. Due to the increasing numbers of older adults and the demand for the home direct-care workers all over Europe, there is a current and, possible, future shortage of trained caregivers.

In many EU Member States, migrants are filling this labour gap, providing essential care services. Migrant elderly caregivers are dealing with important challenges of inadequate education and training, low wages, minimal worker benefits, lack of career advancement opportunities, and erratic and often part-time employment.

The lack of adequate training for elderly caregivers remains a major gap in workforce development.

In the framework of the IENE 7 project, five partners from Romania, UK, Spain and Italy created an innovative European Model and a Curriculum for training migrants who work as caregivers of elderly people in Europe.
