The innovation center of the city council of Valencia, Las Naves, in coordination with the Covenant on Demographic Change, organized the event “INTEGRATED CARE IN EUROPE: KEYS, CHALLENGES AND BEST PRACTICES” to spread the knowledge of Integrated Care and its benefits on the elderly.
The catastrophic events of the passed year have led to a neglect of chronic conditions. A decline has been detected in the physical, mental, and emotional health of our older citizens in Europe. Now more than ever, there is a need for an integrated approach to care, shifting the focus from a silo-based approach to social and health care delivery. Within the ValueCare project, the aim is to provide older adults with an intervention focused on value-based integrated care and improve the lives of not only these older participants, but also of their caregivers and the social and medical professionals who treat them.
The webinar organized by the Valencia Pilot Site of ValueCare aims to raise awareness and increase knowledge of Integrated Care among various stakeholders at a European level. It is a chance to impart the knowledge of experts in the field and to share experiences of integrated care programmes in practice throughout Europe.
