In January 2021 a series of online workshops having as scope the presentation and piloting of Romanian version of INDEED online training platform took place in Romania, in two different places, as follows:
CAMPUS and CONNECT - on January 19 (Bucharest) and January 21 (Cluj Napoca),
COACH - on January 20 (Bucharest) and January 22 (Cluj Napoca).
The workshops were organized by the project consortium and Romanian Alzheimer Society and were attended by around 15-25 participants in each workshop, with different background in the field of dementia – physicians (general practitioners, specialists in neurology and geriatrics), psychologists, nurses, physical therapist, social workers. Around 80% from the participants were from urban area and 20% from rural area.
The feedback received from the participants was very good, the scores given to almost all the questions being closed to maximum. It were highly appreciated the structure of the platform, the content, the level of details, the length of the workshops, the importance of inter-professional collaboration, the way of creating the business plan in small groups for the COACH module.
An important mention was that all the workshops met the participants’ expectations to a very large degree (rating 4.7-4.9 out of 5).
Some important suggestions occurred, such as the promotion of the platform in order to be easy found through Google searching by word “Alzheimer”, the inclusion of a list of professionals into the platform.
Overall the workshops were successful, very well received, with a very good feedback for all the aspects and important suggestions for the future.
