As people get older, it becomes more likely that they will need day-to-day help with activities such as washing and dressing or help with household activities such as cleaning and cooking. They need what is commonly termed long-term care (LTC). Demand for long-term care is expected to rise, in part due to ageing populations and increasing prevalence of long-term conditions such as dementia. Across OECD countries, LTC systems are under pressure to adapt.
Join us in our webinar on June 16th, 2020 at 10:00 am EST titled “Who provides long-term care? Enduring adequate workforce and social protection in long-term care”. In this event, Ana Llena-Nozal, Senior Economist and Long-term care team leader at the OECD, and Tiago Cravo Oliveira Hashiguchi, Health Policy Analyst at the OECD, will present the results of two new publications of the OECD.
In the first part of this webinar they will present cross-country and regional comparable estimates of the adequacy, equity and efficiency of public social protection systems for LTC in old age in OECD countries and EU Member States.
The second part of the webinar will be focused on long-term care workforce, the difficult working conditions in the sector and the training gaps. The presenters will also discuss the policies implemented across OECD countries to improve LTC workers recruitment, training and retention.
The webinar will be in Spanish/English with English/Spanish interpreting.
