SCIROCCO Exchange - Capacity-building support for integrated care
Integrated care is a recognised solution to address the challenge of ageing population. Hence, it is important to commit to opportunities that increase the readiness and capacity of regions to implement integrated care. Knowledge transfer has been greatly recognised as an effective enabler of capacity-building support. However, effective knowledge transfer and capacity-building support requires dedicated support and infrastructure to ensure that the flow of appropriate information and knowledge between adopting and transferring entities is tailored to the local context and maturity of the particular healthcare system seeking the support. This is a precondition to help health and care authorities to build their capacity for the successful transition towards integrated care.
