Investigadora Ana Paula Gil vence Best Paper Award em Conferência “Transforming Care”


A investigadora do CICS.NOVA participou nesta conferência em 2017 com o paper “Care and mistreatment - two sides of the same coin? An exploratory study of three Portuguese care homes”, que foi agora premiado e publicado no International Journal of Care and Caring, editado pela Policy Press.


“The quality of care practices is still a central issue for long-term care policy. Following seven signs used to evaluate care practices, this article presents the initial results of ongoing research carried out in three Portuguese care homes in 2017. The article uses mixed methods (24 interviews and a data survey), based on the perspectives of care workers, professional staff and managers. The findings highlight the non-recognition of care work, difficult working conditions, poor training and a limited monitoring of the care system as factors that reduce the quality of care and increase the risk of an institutionalised culture of care omission.”

3rd Transforming Care Conference - Innovation and Sustainability aconteceu no Politécnico de Milão, entre 26 e 28 de Junho de 2017.
