EFPC Webinar series 2022 | Main Theme 2022: “Primary Care and the Patient Perspective”
Webinar: Community Nursing, the Austrian experience
9th November 2022 | 12-13h CET
Since the beginning of 2022 the pilot project “Community Nursing”, funded by the European Commission – NextGenerationEU, is rolled out in all Austrian provinces. Around 120 projects are being realized to increase and strengthen the health literacy of the population and improve people’s well-being through community nurses. A focus is on providing elderly people to remain in their own homes while receiving the necessary care.
In addition to general information and background on the community nursing project, the webinar highlights the opportunities and benefits of this new healthcare concept, as well as providing insights into the diverse and interesting projects. Julia Grabher-Schwaninger, community nurse at the city of Dornbirn, will give her practical input to share her experiences and knowledge.
