Assessing Needs of Care in European Nations, ANCIEN
A short introduction to ANCIEN
ANCIEN is a research project financed under the 7th EU Research Framework Programme. The project includes 20 partners from EU member states, started in January 2009 and will last 44 months.
ANCIEN concerns the future of long-term care (LTC) for the elderly in Europe. The questions we ask in ANCIEN are:
1) How will need, demand, supply and use of LTC develop?
2) How do different systems of LTC perform?
The project proceeds in consecutive steps of collecting and analysing information and projecting future scenarios on long term care needs, use, quality assurance and system performance. State of the art demographic, epidemiologic and econometric modelling will be used to interpret and project needs, supply and use of long term care over future time periods for different long term care systems.
