This is a video recording of the first of a series of four webinars reflecting on what England should learn from the experiences of the Long-Term Care (LTC) systems in Japan, France, Denmark and the Netherlands during COVID-19, as part of the Social Care COVID Resilience and Recovery project carried out by Care Policy and Evaluation Centre (CPEC) at LSE and the Nuffield Trust and funded by the National Institute for Health and Care Research.
In this webinar held on the 21st February 2023, after a short introduction to the project by Adelina Comas-Herrera (LSE, UK) and Natasha Curry (Nuffield Trust, UK), Joanna Marczak (LSE, UK) and Nick Zonnenveld (Vilans, the Netherlands) consider the characteristics of the Dutch LTC system prior to COVID-19, the general impacts of COVID-19 on people who receive and provide care, the LTC system’s response COVID-19 and what lessons could be learnt from the Dutch experience.
The project identified as key areas for learning from the Dutch experience:
- Client’s involvement in decision making through client councils (legal mechanism to ensure that care users and relatives were involved in decisions that affect them)
- Challenges impacting the effectiveness of measures to recruit and retain workforce
- The role of incentives for collaboration and integration
- The use of digital technology
