Title: EUropean Refugees-HUman Movement and Advisory Network

The international refugee crisis has reached a critical point and many European countries are developing policy and plan to better define their role in supporting refugees entering Europe. The aim of this proposal is to enhance the capacity of European member states who accept migrants and refugees in addressing their health needs, safeguard them from risks, and minimize cross-border health risks. This initiative will focus on addressing both the early arrival period and longer-term settlement of refugees in European host countries. The existing European and international experience will be systematically reviewed to identify effective interventions to vulnerable groups and tools for the initial health care needs assessment of the arriving refugees including mental, psychosocial and physical health. Established approaches including Participatory and Learning Action and Normalization Process Theory will be used to gain new understanding regarding the needs and opinions of both refugees and stakeholders in regards to the measures needed for health care assessment, and preventive activities including vaccinations, general health hygiene measures, chronic disease management, and psychosocial support. The content of the services that an early or late hosting multi-disciplinary center could offer in the countries that they will accept refugees will be discussed and defined by an international expert panel. Clinical protocols, guidelines together with health education and promotion material and as well as a training programme will be developed for staff serving the refugees and migrants health care centre and tailored protocols and pilot testing in six implementation settings in Greece, Italy, Croatia, Hungary, Austria and Slovenia with contribution from experts and stakeholders from Turkey, Cyprus, Ireland and Belgium. Finally, all these efforts will be evaluated and a final report for implementation in Europe.

The project builds upon the preliminary achievements of the B3 Action Group on Integrated Care of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP on AHA) that first developed the concept of the B3 Maturity Model. Through the activities of the EU Health Programme funded project SCIROCCO, the Model has been further refined and is supported by a validated online self-assessment tool for integrated care. The ambition of the SCIROCCO Exchange project is to maximise the value and impact of the Model and Tool. The purpose of this hub is to facilitate the process of “matching” the needs of the regions with existing evidence on integrated care, good practices, tools and guidelines and thus facilitate the learning and exchange of good practices. The project will deliver improved coding of available evidence on integrated care and make the learning readily available to potential adopters. The project also explores the readiness of local environment for the adoption of integrated care, using the SCIROCCO online self-assessment tool, in order to understand the local needs and the ground for the transition. This will serve as a basis to design a tailored capacity-building approach and personalised assistance to national and regional health and social care authorities. The project will capture the learning from the process of transferability and knowledge transfer in order to inform improvement planning for integrated care. Finally, the project will also be an opportunity to explore the potential expansion of the SCIROCCO Maturity Model and its online self-assessment tool for integrated care to other relevant areas of active and healthy ageing.
