The MY-RELIEF project will achieve the following results on its completion:

  1. A comprehensive education package, publicly available and usable on mobile devices, will be accessible to workers (55+ years) with low back pain in five official languages of the European Union (English, Swedish, Italian, Lithuanian, Portuguese). The package will include the following four INTELLECTUAL OUTPUTS (IOs): multimedia training videos with workers and experts (IO1), health education handbook for physical and mental well-being (IO2), mobile-based serious game for self-assessment (IO3), and MOOC (IO4).
  2.  The use of a mobile-based approach for delivering the education package will allow for adapting the learning experience to end-users needs and to track actual learning outcomes. The training package is expected to be beneficial for mature workers engaged in the pilot testing (at least 100 people), but also for workers using the package in the future. The education package is expected:
    – to increase working adults (55+ years ) knowledge of evidence based strategies for self-managing low back pain
    – to improve mature workers working adults (55+ years) skills acquisition in applying self-managment strategies across all spheres of life (work, home, leisure etc.)
  3. Considering the long-term impact of the project, the mature workers with low back pain involved in the pilot testing (at least 100 people) are expected report improved outcomes after a follow up (2 months from completion of the training course), including:
    a) improved awareness and ability to monitor, limit and cope with low back pain;
    b) improved physical and mental health and well-being;
    c) improved life and job satisfaction;
    d) improved transversal skills;
