The project ICARE4EU aims to contribute to the innovation of care for European citizens with multiple chronic conditions by increasing and disseminating knowledge of potentially effective and efficient models of integrated care for people with multiple chronic conditions that are developed and implemented in (parts of) European countries. The vast majority of people with multimorbidity are older individuals. Integrated care addresses their integral needs for health and social care, and is provided by multidisciplinary teams of professionals and/or informal carers.
ICARE4EU will describe the state of the art in 30 European countries; evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of current integrated care programmes; identify best practices from different perspectives; generate knowledge about key characteristics and conditions for successful management and implementation of integrated care programmes; design a template for future monitoring of the developments in multimorbidity chronic illness care; and disseminate its findings throughout Europe.
