Long-term care is an increasingly important issue in many contemporary welfare states around the globe given ageing populations. This ground-breaking book provides detailed case studies of 11 EU-member states’ welfare regimes within Europe to show how welfare states organize, structures and deliver long-term care and whether there is a social investment perspective in the delivery of long-term care. This perspective is important because the effect of demographic transitions is often used as an argument for the existence of economic pressure on welfare states and a need for either direct retrenchment or attempts to reduce welfare state spending. The book’s chapters will look specifically into how different welfare states have focussed on long-term care in recent years and what type of changes have taken place with regard to ageing populations and ambitions to curb increases in public sector spending in this area. They describe the development in long-term care for the elderly after the financial crisis and also discuss the boundaries between state and civil society in the different welfare states' approaches to the delivery of care.

Eine an den Bedürfnissen der Patienten orientierte und bezahlbare Versorgung ist zukünftig nur möglich, wenn sich das deutsche Gesundheitswesen grundlegend wandelt. Wohin die Reise gehen sollte, zeigen die Gesundheitssysteme anderer Länder: Wir brauchen den Übergang zu einer integrierten, sektor- und berufsgruppenübergreifenden Versorgung mit einer stärkeren dezentralen Verankerung der Prozesse und Strukturen. Erste Schritte in diese Richtung wurden Anfang des Jahrtausends eingeleitet. Doch in den letzten Jahren kamen diese Schritte ins Stocken. Namhafte Autoren aus Wissenschaft, Verbänden, Sozialversicherung, Verwaltung, Praxis und Industrie zeigen in diesem Buch auf, wie es in Richtung regionaler, integrierter Versorgungsformen weitergehen sollte. Mit seinem Erscheinen in der Reihe „Gesundheit. Politik – Gesellschaft – Wirtschaft“ (hrsg. von E.-W. Luthe und J. N. Weatherly) steht das Buch für die wachsende Erkenntnis, Gesundheitspolitik als interdisziplinäre Aufga be zu betrachten.

This book provides a comprehensive overview on the long-term care systems in 12 EU member states and Norway. Focusing on the legal background and its main principles, it includes a comparative analysis which highlights the principal dissimilarities between European long term care benefits, but at the same time also a variety of features in common. It also discusses the increasingly transnational dimension of long-term as a result of migrants returning to their country of origin in old age, and the still-unsolved legal problem of entitlement to long-term care benefits in another EU-member state.

The number of elderly people relying on formal long-term care services is dramatically increasing year after year, and the challenge of ensuring the quality and financial stability of care provision is one faced by governments in both the developed and developing world. This edited book is the first to provide a comprehensive international survey of long-term care provision and regulation, built around a series of case studies from Europe, North America and Asia. The analytical framework allows the different approaches that countries have adopted to be compared side by side and readers are encouraged to consider which quality assurance approaches might best meet their own country's needs. Wider issues underpinning the need to regulate the quality of long-term care are also discussed. This timely book is a valuable resource for policymakers working in the health care sector, researchers and students taking graduate courses on health policy and management.

Although efforts to reduce health disparities receive attention at the national level, information on the successes of state and local efforts are often not heard. On May 11, 2009, the Institute of Medicine held a public workshop to discuss the role of state and local policy initiatives to reduce health disparities. The workshop brought together stakeholders to learn more about what works in reducing health disparities and ways to focus on localized efforts when working to reduce health disparities.

We are proud to announce that this book is joint winner of the EHMA Baxter Award 2007. "A genuinely fantastic resourse; such a rare text that provides such factual information for students and lecturers. A rich review of the subject areas from across Europe. Fantastic text." Chris Kelly, Programme Leader, Bournemouth University "Mental Health Policy and Practice Across Europe is a fascinating, complicated volume that looks at one of the key dimensions of contemporary mental health policy development in Europe -- the role of the European Union (EU)." Medicine Weekly In much of Europe it remains taboo to discuss the challenges that poor mental health raises for governments, societies and particularly for people with mental health problems themselves. This book maps the current state of policy, service provision and funding for mental health care across Europe, taking into account the differing historical contexts that have shaped both the development and delivery of services. A holistic approach is adopted that aims to assess the influence on mental health of environmental factors such as housing, poverty, employment, social justice and displacement. Covering a wide range of policy issues, the book: Examines the legal rights of people with mental health problems Addresses the impact of stigma, social exclusion and discrimination Reviews the role of users and their families in the development of mental health services and policy Reflects on approaches to reform and on the future development of services Evaluates opportunities for the rehabilitation of people with mental health problems Discusses the financing and organisation of mental health systems Reflects on approaches to reform and the future development of services Mental Health Policy and Practice Across Europe is key reading for policy makers, professionals involved in the delivery of health and social care services, voluntary agencies, non-governmental organizations, academics and students of health policy.

This particular report brings together evidence from a wide range of individuals and organizations, and relates to the European Commission Green Paper of October 2005, Improving the mental health of the population: towards a strategy on mental health for the European Union, (http://ec.europa.eu/health/ph_determinants/life_style/mental/green_paper/mental_gp_en.pdf), which itself followed on from a World Health Organization conference in January 2005 between health ministers, discussing mental health problems across Europe (ISBN 9789289013772). Various health studies have shown an increase in mental health problems across Europe, with one in four adults experiencing some kind of mental health problem in any one year, often the result of anxiety disorder or depression, or sometimes the result of a more severe mental disorder, such as schizophrenia. Also, high rates of emotional and behavioural disorders among children and adolescents, as well as mental health problems among older people have been observed. The impact on individuals and families is enormous, and the cost to the economy is estimated at over £77 billion every year. The European Union Committee believes a wider public recognition is needed on the impact of mental health problems in the UK. The European Union has a role to play in promoting better mental health and delivering better services, and facilitating the exchange of information and best practice. The report is divided into 11 chapters, and 5 appendices. Chapters cover such topics as: defining mental well-being; the social and economic impact; human rights issues; social exclusion, stigma and discrimination; mental health issues for population sub-groups

It’s a core issue at the heart of elder care: while best-practice data exist for long-term care, quality of life as a concept, measure and standard for care outcomes remains elusive. The result of an ambitious European research initiative, the Care Keys Project addresses quality of life issues among frail, care-dependent seniors, taking their social as well as health needs into account. This resulting volume explains the theory behind Care Keys, its methodology, empirical findings, and practical considerations in promoting effective, efficient elder care aimed at social and emotional well-being and including disabled and cognitively impaired patients.
