EVENT E2: First training day for the promotion of healthy housing as a habitat model for Primary Health Care professionals.

Once the first studies of the project, the Guide to methods, design procedures and social habits, and the BIMhealthy Syllabus had been completed, a training day was organised for Primary Health Care professionals in which the importance of healthy housing as a promoter of health from a biopsychosocial perspective was addressed. This second multiplier event has served as a presentation of the BIMhealthy project to professionals of the health sector in Spain and as an official presentation of the IO1 corresponding to “Exhibition of common learning outcomes for methodologies linking housing with health and social services” developed in the project. The aim of this event is to gather information from the attendees, experts in the different fields of the health sector. Once the project research had been carried out, the different methodologies established were analysed and discussed, highlighting their strengths and weaknesses, as well as their adaptation to the current situation and needs that society demands in terms of health and housing. The comments, sensations and feedback from the experts were used and implemented to elaborate a methodology to be applied to future courses and contents. Special attention was paid to the debate on the different determinants that relate health and housing, with the organisation of a round table that covered the main theme of the project. Experts from the sector attended this event and participated in the round table. At the end of the interventions foreseen in the agenda, a survey was provided to the attendees in order to obtain feedback based on the experience, to be able to implement improvements and if necessary, reorient the results of the project for future tasks. Regarding the number of participants, the total number of attendees at the second multiplier event of the E2 project “First training day for the promotion of healthy housing as a habitat model for professionals in Primary Health Care” was 11 people from outside the project and 6 project participants. It is worth highlighting the positive reception of both the project and its results by professionals in the sector, who value the project very positively and highlight its importance in meeting a current social need in terms of health.
