The European voice for informal carers

Integrated Long-Term Care: Eurocarers is involved in new ‘LAUREL’ project

On 7 February, Eurocarers took part in the kick-off meeting of the ‘LAUREL: Actionable policies for adopting high-quality integrated long-term care’ project in Barcelona. The overall goal of this new project is to gather valuable insights into regional differences of Integrated Long-Term Care (I-LTC) provision, and their support solutions in Europe. Using this intelligence, it will develop actionable policies to respond to ongoing challenges such as: growing demand for I-LTC, economic constraints, accessibility, affordability, quality of services, staff shortages, and systemic reforms. LAUREL will identify a set of innovative integrated care solutions leading to better quality, person-centred LTC, overcoming territorial and gender inequalities in their provision.

LAUREL is a 36-month project funded by the European Union programme Horizon Europe, involving 9 organisations coordinated by Fundació de Recerca Clínic Barcelona-Institut d’Investigacions Biomèdiques August Pi i Sunyer (FRCB-IDIBAPS). Field research will be conducted in the EU-27. In order to secure this capacity, the project’s strength lies in the active involvement of purposefully selected European-wide networks – Including Eurocarers – each with specific interests in domains of relevance to I-LTC.

Participating in this project will give Eurocarers the opportunity to voice the needs and the role played by informal carers in the context of Integrated Long-Term Care, and bring to the table key instances such as better cooperation between formal and informal carers.

More information will be shared regularly in Eurocarers newsletter as the project develops.
