CAREGIVERSPRO-MMD and ICT4Life will jointly organize the PEARL Workshop: Patient Data Acquisition, Analysis, Profiling and Personalized Care Plan, on 26-29 June 2018, in Corfu, Greece, within the activities of the PETRA (PErvasive Technologies Related to Assistive Environments) 2018 conference.
People with Dementia, Alzheimer or Parkinson’s disease have a lot of problems to manage alone and require for care. As the impairment increases the caregiver (member of family or professional) needs to dedicate much more time, mental and physical effort. Technology along with medical expertise can be used in order to assess the patients’ medical and cognitive status decreasing the need of the continuous caregiver presence and, at the same time, increasing the patient’s independence and the quality of life. To this end, sensors and wearables along with social networking platforms can be used in order to manage patients’ profiles, generate medication recommendations and personalized care plans.
The workshop aims to bring together researchers from various scientific domains relevant to this multidisciplinary field of research, as well as present the results from the two EU funded projects.
