European Network on Long-term Care Quality and Cost Effectiveness and Dependency Prevention

To carry out a synthesis of existing evidence on effectiveness of interventions in long-term care around 5 themes: trends in disability across the EU, prevention of dependency, informal carers, innovative care models and technologies (e.g. personalization and ICT) and integrated care provision. 

The project partners will review existing evidence through rapid reviews and case studies (the latter will include expert interviews) in each of the 5 themes mentioned above. The evidence gathered will feed into a modelling exercise to assess the cost-effectiveness of promising interventions identified in each theme. The project will also build a website repository of good practices to further the exchange of knowledge between European countries.

The team of the European Centre are co-coordinators of the themes innovative care models and technologies and integrated care provision.
