The geriatric population is as a group often at risk of disease and often experiencing limited access to health care system because of place of residence, economic factors, social isolation, complex medical illness, and other individual and familial factors. Quality is essential to continue examining existing organizational structures in homecare or institution for elderly. Interdisciplinary and person-centred cares have been utilized to trigger quality in geriatrics care for years. Person-centred care was part of a wide movement during the last decades of the 20th century that recognised that people with dementia could benefit from psychological approaches, that they had human rights and that they proposed a challenge to dehumanizing care practice which had not been seen previously. These programs have used diverse group of educational models to relate various health professions and community service agencies with academic institutions for training in care of the elderly and to address ethical issues training for the purpose of stimulating educational collaboration. This article explores present and for the future recommendations for interdisciplinary collaborations, discusses educational models on quality management especially in France and Belgian. [less ▲]
