HSMC representative at international long term care meeting

Posted on Thursday 15th April 2010

HSMC Lecturer Helen Dickinson was recently invited to represent England at an international expert meeting on accessibility to long-term care in Europe, the USA and Canada.  The meeting, hosted by the Universitair Medisch Centrum in Utrecht, the Netherlands, brought together representatives from Sweden, the USA, Canada, France, Belgium and Germany to compare the processes of funding and assessment for long-term care in these countries.  The discussions will inform potential future changes to the Dutch long-term care insurance system.

While at Utrecht, Helen also hosted a workshop at a national congress on care assessment, which brought together nearly 400 delegates working in long-term care in the Netherlands.
