Diagnosis about acquired disabilities derived from overcoming situations in Terrassa

DEP Institut is collaborating with Diputació de Barcelona and Terrassa City Council to carry out the Diagnosis of acquired disabilities derived from overcoming situations in the municipality of Terrassa.

The purpose of this diagnosis is: to take a picture of the reality of disability in the city; to define the existing resources and the current accompaniment circuit to people of the municipality with an overcoming disability; and design the protocol of future action for the accompaniment to the people of the municipality with an overcoming disability (how to deal with the person who has had many changes in different areas of his life – autonomy, wellbeing and social ties -).

To achieve these goals, DEP Institut will use both qualitative and quantitative methodologies. With respect to the quantitative ones, the existing statistical data on the acquired disabilities derived from overcoming situations will be collected and analyzed, as well as analyzing the data provided by the Diputació de Barcelona on the profile of the users of Terrassa health services. Regarding the qualitative dimension, the team will do a documentary search, develop a map of actors and conduct a series of interviews with experts.
