Grounded in the extensive experience of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP on AHA), SCIROCCO aims to provide a validated and tested tool that facilitates the successful scaling-up and transfer of good practices in integrated care across European regions. SCIROCCO will specifically focus on successful local interventions (good practices) that have demonstrated significant benefits to citizens, communities and service providers and that feature moving towards community-based, integrated health and social care service models.SCIROCCO will deliver an assessment of the contextual requirements necessary for the scale-up of these interventions and the capacity of regions to adopt them. SCIROCCO will also compare the readiness of five European regions to adopt good practices in the provision of integrated care, to demonstrate the effectiveness of the tool in practice.SCIROCCO explores how matching regions that have complementary strengths and weaknesses can deliver two major benefits: a strong basis for successful twinning and coaching that facilitates shared learning and effective knowledge transfer; and practical support for the scaling-up of good practices that promote active and healthy ageing and participation in the community.Finally, SCIROCCO captures the lessons learned from twinning, coaching and knowledge transfer activities as a significant contribution to supporting the broader implementation and scaling-up of local integrated care interventions in Europe, in line with the European Commission's 'European Scaling-up Strategy in Active & Healthy Ageing'.

The Project AHEAD will address the challenge of medical deserts and medical desertification in Europe in an effort to help reduce health inequalities. The Project’s objective is to provide support to policy makers in selected Member States and other eligible countries to define, design and implement evidence-based and context-specific reforms in the health workforce field that specifically aim to counteract and/or prevent medical deserts. The approach applied in this Project will build knowledge, encourage (digital) innovation in health service delivery to improve access and apply a participatory approach to public health policy making. The Project will be carried out in Romania, Serbia, Moldova, Italy and the Netherlands and will benefit health policy makers, patients’ organizations, health professionals’ organisations, affected communities and more. The countries were carefully selected to highlight different manifestations of medical deserts and to address interconnectedness as a result of health worker mobility. Activities include: desk research; participatory action research; multi-stakeholder consensus building dialogues; high-level policy dialogues at national and EU level. The dissemination of the Projects’ knowledge products and best practices is a cross-cutting activity, aiming to also inspire duty bearers outside the Project. The consortium will produce several deliverables: policy briefs; a set of contextualized and feasible policy solutions to address medical deserts in the countries; an improved definition and taxonomy of medical deserts; a medical deserts diagnostic monitoring tool; a prototype for a medical deserts visual mapping tool; a tested and replicable approach for participatory health policy making. Our ultimate impact at society and EU level is better access to health services, especially in underserved areas, and more equitable access to sufficient, skilled and motivated health workers, starting with the countries involved in the Project.

Topic: 3.3 Support the sustainability of the health workforce by developing effective health workforce forecasting and planning in terms of numbers, gender equality, scope of practice and the extent to which training matches the requisite skills, including the ability to make use of new information systems and other advanced technologies, monitor mobility (within the Union) and migration of health professionals, foster efficient recruitment and retention strategies and capacity development, taking due account of issues of dependency and population ageing.

Health workforce planning systems show a high variety of maturity in the EU. Member States tend to focus on diverse aspects of managing health workforces and health policy focuses on optimising the operation of health systems by various measures. Initiatives on task shifting can contribute to more effective organisation of care and human resources for health management at different levels, so committing to improve efficient and sustainable health systems in innovative ways.The main objectives of the TaSHI project are to provide a novel understanding and up-to-date knowledge on task shifting and on transferability and uptake of good practices in implementation. TaSHI applies different methods of analyses in order to provide added value on the concept, notion, and implementation of task shifting at EU-, national- and regional levels. TaSHI performs pilots at five implementation sites to gather evidence and data on the different types of task shifting (e.g. working time re-allocation, re-considered scope of practices in primary care, mental health care, radiology and ophthalmology, benefiting from telemedicine and digital health).TaSHI aims to facilitate dialogues and knowledge exchanges between the relevant stakeholders. Strengthening governance and stakeholder engagement for transferring and upscaling task shifting practices plays a crucial role in policy-making supporting health reforms for workforce development, as well as in enhancing cultural sensitivity, flexibility, readiness, and organizational adaptation to task shifting.TaSHI delivers a collection of good practices, useful tools and methods, a guidebook on task shifting supporting the real-life implementation, case studies on the pilots’ experiences, practical training materials and curriculum, and a set of recommendations. The deliverables on tangible solutions and practical products support EU MS at policy and organisational level to initiate and implement their own actions tailored to the local settings.
