The CCA provides valuable support to facilities and organisations wishing to undertake research projects, carry out organisational analyses or offer supervision to their nursing staff. It also has a documentation centre open to the public.
The Advanced Studies consist of long-term training courses based on a modular system aimed at a professional audience and designed in such a way as to enable the degree to be obtained in parallel with professional activity. The CCA is active within the DAS Gerontology and Geriatrics, a course that prepares for the role of clinical specialist in this field.
The Centre is active in short training courses aimed at various healthcare professionals such as nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, social workers and social workers, as well as in rehabilitation training courses.
The CCA team offers in-house training courses, targeted to the specific needs of individual organisations. For instance, the CCA carries out research-awareness-raising mandates in the canton's institutions on specific topics (such as well-being) and organises conferences.
