On November 17th and 18th, the city of Viña del Mar became the venue for the VIII National Conference and the II International REDESAM Conference.
The acronym “REDESAM” translates into “Nursing Network in the Health of the Elderly”, an international entity that seeks to form links and cooperation between nurses from different territories.
Three of our MICARE researchers had the opportunity to present at the encounter, which occurred at the Viña campus of Santo Tomás University.
Alejandra Araya (associated MICARE researcher and UNAB Nursing academic), presented at the beginning of the conference about the work of MICARE, in her presentation titled “Challenges for care”.
Claudia Miranda, director of MICARE, UNAB Nursing professor and MIDAP researcher, presented on care in her paper “Update on psychosocial research in people with dementia and their informal caregivers”.
Finally, Beatriz Carrasco, MICARE’s doctoral student, spoke on “Loneliness and social isolation: mediation between multimorbidity and frailty.”
