This call aims to bring together institutions that can develop solid evidence on the costeffectiveness of investments in a wide range of measures to reduce the gap between the need for, and supply of, long-term care, including prevention, rehabilitation, assistive technologies and agefriendly environments as well as a more efficient organisation of care systems.
Priorities and funded actions:
– Gathering and review evidence on the cost-effectiveness of a broad range of measures
– Setting priorities for public investment in prevention, rehabilitation, age-friendly environments and independent living solutions, and more efficient care systems
Among financed actions
– Gathering evidence on the main causes of/pathways into dependency
– Reviewing the current state of the art in preventing dependency
– Examining the potential for rehabilitation for various causes of dependency
– Identifying measures that would help people with functional limitations to remain independent longer and to have to rely less on care provided by others
– Identifying potentials for efficiency gains in the delivery of care, including through a better coordination of care delivered by medical and social care professionals and informal carers
