Priorities in reform of care services : synthesis report
EU countries face a common challenge: maintaining and improving the quality of elderly care while ensuring it is both accessible and financially sustainable. A Peer Review in Stockholm (September 2013) explored the Swedish approach to care reform, and organised a common discussion with peer countries on these topics. Sweden has managed to maintain a particularly high standard of care. Experts from Sweden and ten other EU countries, as well as representatives from the European Commission and stakeholders, met in Stockholm to explore Sweden’s efforts to make care more person-centred without... jeopardising long-term financial sustainability.
