The project “Towards active wellness and active aging focused on citizenship”, supported by EIT Health, begins its second phase with a Summer School to be held on 12, 13 and 14 July at the Palau Macaya in Barcelona.

The project “Towards citizen-centered active ageing and well-being” has as main objective to reach the specific field of older persons’ care based on the accumulated knowledge and the advances made in educational and research projects by the University of Barcelona GISME Group in recent years.

The first phase of the educational project began on April 19th with a Professional Training at Official College of Psychologists of Barcelona in which four experts in the autonomy of older persons from four different disciplines (psychology, medicine, law, and nursing) provided a vision and mission of geriatrics these professional associations.

This second phase is aimed at those who have attended the training provided in the various professional fields (psychology, medicine, law and nursing) as well as at experts from public and private entities in charge of managing care services for older persons and at professionals who are directly responsible for such care.
