Questionnaire for teachers delivering courses to carers of older adults

Grandis is an EU funded project for developing education and training material for carers of older adults in the community. 

The aim of the training material is to provide the participants with 21st century digital and technological competencies that are successfully applicable in providing social services and remote monitoring of seniors. 

 

Technology is increasingly important for delivering health and social care that enables older adults to remain in their own homes for as long as possible, living active and independent lives.

We would like to ask you some questions that will help us understand your training needs and experiences related to the kinds of technology involved in these health and social care tasks.

Which competencies, skills do you consider to be important in this topic?
Does the current curriculum cover such competencies?

When you have answered all the questions, please, click the Submit button. In case of a successful submission you will be directed to a closing page. If it does not happen, please check whether you have answered all questions marked with a red asterisk (*)


The survey is completely ANONYMOUS because we are not asking any questions that can personally identify you in any way. Your participation is, of course, entirely voluntary.


Thank you very much for taking the time and trouble to answer our questionnaire.
