Media outreach and press coverage

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the team managed to raise awareness for the project among various primary care organisations, dementia and Alzheimer’s associations and different media thanks to a PR campaign, engaging social media and the recruitment campaigns for participation in the evaluation and co-creation sessions in the partner countries.

We managed to gather a fair amount of online press coverage in the specialised, trade media in the partner countries. Mainly IT, medical press and care magazines published an article based on the press release about the Alzheimer Care Trainer that was issued in October 2020. The PR campaign was successful with an online media coverage of 40 plus published articles.
