oMERO - an eu curriculuM for visual disabilitiEs RehabilitatOrs

The oMERO project aims to overcome the skills gap and formalize a new curriculum that addresses a new specialized figure, Visual Disability Rehabilitators (VDRs), who provide physical, mental, and sensory rehabilitation services, in a new transdisciplinary, user-centered, ICT-based approach.


Being anchored to the current needs of end users and society, the proposed VDR curriculum will meet the learning needs of students while being relevant to the job market. The VDR could be employed in both the public and private sectors, in residential, semiresidential or outpatient health care facilities; he or she should collaborate with other members of the rehabilitation team and informal caregivers. The VDR should develop, implement and monitor the comprehensive rehabilitation intervention of the visually impaired user of any age, ensuring the best level of quality of life and autonomy through empowerment, communication, learning, mobility and orientation, and daily living skills.
