E-learning training offers the possibility of updating and implementing the training received by professionals in the socio-health area. This type of training is very useful for professionals who carry out a professional activity and have family responsibilities, since it allows them to reconcile their family and work life. The European Union insists on the need for coordination of health and social services to achieve a high level of quality and effective use of resources and long-term care in their environment (Munuera, 2016).
The increase in life expectancy and the growth of the older population generate new situations that demand a response from the institutions in order to obtain the necessary attention and avoid degenerative diseases or crises that become chronic or structural, which has more to do with the need to design bio-psycho-social interventions, as required by the current citizens. In this study we analyze the importance of socio-health training in the e-learning modality in the two editions of the socio-health and social services in Social Work course, for those professionals working in health and social services.
The objective of the training has been to strengthen the skills of professionals in the construction of a socio-health space that strengthens the quality and effectiveness of responding to the needs of the population according to the Official Association of Social Workers of Madrid. It begins with the concept of health care adopted in the project of the Community of Madrid as the set of benefits and services that ensure health and social care for people who are in a situation of dependency and disability for the development of their autonomous life as a consequence or associated to the existence of a chronic disease. The methodology used was initially a bibliographic review in scientific databases, then the data provided by the statistics on the course provided by the application of UNED Open Insights has been analyzed and a qualitative analysis has been carried out categorizing the opinions given by the students. The training that is analyzed has the purpose of strengthening a coordination space between social and health services in order to increase the quality of care received and thus implement the interventions of professionals from the field of Social Work in those problems that require a more social, global or holistic approach, than those offered by other, more known or developed approaches such as biological, psychological, educational, etc.
