The SUSTAIN project has published the European baseline report titled ‘Integrated care for older people living at home – Current situation and ambition of sites participating in the SUSTAIN project’.

SUSTAIN is a cross-European research project that aims to improve integrated care for older people living at home with multiple health and social care needs. The project is coordinated by VU University Medical Centre (VUmc) and the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM National Institute for Public Health and the Environment ).
 
The report presents the fourteen integrated care sites participating in the SUSTAIN project and their characteristics. In addition, the report provides an overview of barriers and facilitators towards integrated care reported by stakeholders at the fourteen sites, and it describes their areas for potential improvement to move towards more person-centered, safe, efficient and prevention-oriented care for older people living at home.
 
The report is available online
