Health4EU - a 'Positive Health' approach for monitoring your personal health situation
The ageing of Europe’s population is a challenge for the 21st Century. Today, the life expectancy in Europe is more than 80 years. Ageing well is a frequently used concept, describing the objectives of future elderly care. Enabling elderly people to live longer and independently in their own homes is one goal for society as a whole. Ageing is an inevitable truth for everyone. The Positive Health is dynamic concept of health (euPREVENT Congres 2017). In this new definition Health is seen as the ability to adapt and to self manage, in the face of social, physical and emotional challenges. In TPM focused on the target groups Children & People with mental Handicap the Positive Health focus is on the person not on the disease. The focus is on persons strength not on their weaknesses.
The main goal of this project is to develop a European teaching and training module for social and health care students to improve their basic knowledge, skills and competence in supporting peoples empowerment in different ages and client groups by using the concept of Positive Health.
