Erasmus Intenzivni program Prevention for active aging
Active ageing is a topical subject, to which the
whole of the year 2012 (The European Year of Active Ageing and Solidarity
between Generations) was dedicated. Also at the College of Nursing in Celje, we
got activelly involved in the development, and in the context of the Erasmus
project - Intensive Programme, reported a project entitled Prevention for
Active Ageing, which was at the end of May 2012 confirmed at the The Centre of
the Republic of Slovenia for Mobility and European Educational and Training
Programmes. The accepted IP offers an international and interdisciplinary
approach in a number of fields (including nursing, medicine, sociology,
psychology, etc.) with the emphasis on prevention for active ageing.
In June 2013, we have at the College of Nursing in Celje
successfully completed the first international summer school entitled "Prevention
for Active Aging." The summer school was, in the form of the an Erasmus intensive
programme, created in the partnership with four higher education institutions
from the field of nursing care, that is The Faculty of Medicine at the
University of Rijeka (Croatia),CESPU- Advanced Polytechnic and University
Cooperative - Polytechnic Health Institute of the North, Porto (Portugal), Państwowa
Wyższa Szkoła Zawodowa, Krosno (Poland), and the College of Nursing in Celje
The two-week-long summer school was dedicated to
the exploration of various activities, which are carried out in the individual
partner countries for the promotion of active ageing, as well as to the
presentation of best practice cases in the Slovenian area, and the formulation
of proposals for further activities in this area. An important part of the
summer school were also excursions (Anton Trstenjak institute of gerontology
and intergenerational relations, learning about the voluntary work of the
elderly in the Slovene Ethnographic Museum, a visit to the Nursing Home Nina
Pokorn Grmovje, to the General Hospital in Celje) and getting to know Slovenia
(Celje, Ljubljana, a tour of the Franja Hospital, etc.), as well as varied
social and sporting activities. The summer
school was attended by 24 nursing care students from partner institutions, whereas
their work was supervised by more than
10 foreign and domestic lecturers and experts from the field.
