Description of the Action

Caring Errors’ existence and experience at home is far more widespread than imagined. By 2030, the number of people in the world aged 60 years or over is projected to grow up to 1.4 billion and, by 2050. A global strategy has been adopted to reinforce the person-centered care, boost deinstitutionalization, and develop qualified home care support. It is important for caregivers (both professional and informal) to be prepared to develop their skills and provide safe care. The care provided by caregivers at home is more complex and intense, and that is expected to grow. Many informal caregivers are still unaware of the precautions to use medications safely
