4th International Conference on Evidence-based Policy in Long-term Care

The organising committee of the 4th International Conference on Evidence-based Policy in Long-term Care is delighted to invite you to submit abstracts for individual presentations and organised sessions for the conference to be held from 4th to 7th of September 2016 at the London School of Economics and Political Science, London. Building on the success of the three previous editions, the conference will focus on empirical research with direct relevance to long-term care policy.

The conference will offer an opportunity to debate with international experts policy issues related to the organisation, delivery, funding and regulation of long-term care services. Some of the main thematic areas to be covered include: care models; case management; economics of long-term care; equity and efficiency; funding systems; health and social care integration; housing and care; institutional dynamics and politics; international comparative analysis; local vs. central policy interactions; personalisation of the care system; policy implications of dementia; service commissioning and regulation; technology and long-term care; unpaid carers; workforce and migrant workers. Abstracts on other relevant LTC policy evaluation topics will also be considered. We welcome submissions from all geographical areas including low and middle income countries.
