Consulting the users: information needs of older disabled people (CONSULTING THE USERS)



TypeHSR Project
SummaryThe INFOPARK project was undertaken to identify the information, health & social care needs of older people with Parkinson's disease in 7 European countries. This accompanying measure is intended to evaluate the applicability of those findings to reflect the needs of other older disabled people (i.e. those not suffering from Parkinson' s disease) in European countries not involved in the original project and to determine the appropriateness of the 3 educational packages for older disabled people, their informal carers & health & social care professionals. This will be done through expert round table meetings, where 'expert' refers to the disabled people and their informal carers. In addition collaboration with European user/patient organisations will promote the establishment of self-management/expert patient groups on a European basis. It explores new ways of establishing efficient and acceptable user /professional partnerships.
