Abstract

This project consists in the creation of an integrated e-learning information and collaboration online platform on health and diseases of the elderly (55+), targeting specialists/ clinicians, primary care providers, registered nurses, informal caregivers as well as senior citizens to whom the same evidence-based, up-to-date and accredited content will be made accessible in level-adjusted formats. The implementation is planned initially in Switzerland and subsequently in 5 European key regions as well as an outreach to China.A parallel scientific research study will demonstrate the use and value of an integrated platform that successfully addresses the informational needs of health professionals and the senior population in tandem.
