Integration of health and social care – what can Wales learn … and contribute?

Integration of health and social care – what can Wales learn … and contribute? Purpose – This paper aims to present a review on health and social care service integration, drawing on experience from the United Kingdom, Europe and Canada. Design/methodology/approach – A review of the literature was undertaken and critical summaries of the findings are presented. Findings – It seems no country can put forward a universal set of principles that are applicable in all settings. Practical implications – Each country has their own challenges, so perhaps this encourages Welsh professionals to learn from their own experience. Originality/value – This paper adds value by drawing together the literature and providing a contribution from Wales. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Quality in Ageing and Older Adults Emerald Publishing
