When the national core value system was introduced in Sweden, care professionals were challenged to be part of a paradigm shift by changing their perspective, from regarding older people like passive recipients of societal efforts to treating them as active subjects and taking their preferences and wishes into consideration as well. To realize this shift in attitudes and behaviour, an interprofessional blended education course was offered. The present study explored the utility of the blended educational approach in the local implementation of the national policy in elderly care. We argue that the course has contributed to enhanced competence in terms of how professionals relate theories and targeted discussions to specific and concrete improvement in their professions and workplaces.
