knowledge and skills in this area, and above all will provide them with proven substantive knowledge and information on topics adapted to the specifics of work and the function of an informal home caregiver for the elderly.


The main goal of the iTRAIN project is to make evidence-based knowledge available also for low-skilled direct care workers involved in stroke care and rehabilitation in home care, hospital and nursing home settings.
