Survey on the provision of health and social care to older persons



Are you a practitioner providing health or social care to older persons at any capacity (e.g., nurse, social worker, personal assistant, informal caregiver, medical practitioner)?

Then we would like to invite you to participate in the St@ndbyMe survey, which examines common perceptions, and the training needs of practitioners in care about digital rights, human rights, and the increasing technology use in the care sector. The St@ndbyMe project is a European collaboration among NGOs in Germany, Greece, Belgium, Estonia, the Czech Republic, and the Linkoping University in Sweden. The project is co-funded by the European Union under Erasmus+.

We would be very grateful if you would help us to understand better the training needs of practitioners in care in a changing working environment where digitally mediated health (e.g., e-health) becomes a priority in many European welfare systems. In that context, we would like you to participate in a short online survey (5 minutes for completion). We guarantee anonymity throughout the process according to ethical research guidelines and according to the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union.

You are welcome to contact George Pavlidis, PhD ( if you have any questions regarding the St@ndbyMe project or your participation. Your contribution will help us greatly!
