Interactive workshop: Who cares for Ella? Critical elements of integrated health and social care 

10:30 - 11:30

Case Study: Ella is an 83-year old woman, who is living alone in her own house. She suffers from diabetes type 2 and osteoarthritis, and experiences that she is getting a bit forgetful. Since the death of her husband, she often feels lonely. Recently her neighbour found her in the garden and took her to the emergency department. As no bone fractures were found, she returned home. However, she was not able to go upstairs to her bed and undress herself.

In this workshop we will discuss the needs of Ella for health and social care, and consider some models of integrated care that could fit the needs of people like Ella. We will show how Ella is likely to be cared for in Finland and the Netherlands, and invite participants to discuss the pros and cons of each approach and alternative models from other countries or regions. The aims of this workshop are 1) to learn more about integrated care models in various European countries, the policy vision and assumptions underlying these models, and 2) to critically analyse their strengths, weaknesses and future challenges.
