Objective: To evaluate changes in knowledge of elderly people who take part in workshops on health issues. Study Design: Before and after study. Participants: People involved in working groups in two centres for the elderly. Procedure: Educational interventions about influenza, osteoporosis, and cardiovascular risk were programmed. Subject to prior informed consent, the participants answered a questionnaire about previous knowledge, sociodemographic data, and overall health. Then, one of the members of the research group explained a subject. To conclude, a post-test questionnaire was completed. Main measurements: Variables related to sociodemographic features, knowledge of the topics discussed, and overall health. Results: 24 people took part in the workshop on influenza. Before the workshop, 45,8% knew the symptoms, 25% said they knew about its prevention. After the workshop, 58,3% (NS) and 70,8% (p=0,001), respectively. Conclusions: People participating in the workshops improved their knowledge of the topics discussed.
