ILPN International Conference 2014

OVERVIEW

A warm welcome to “Where Next For Long-Term Care Reform?” – the third International Conference on Evidence-based Policy in Longterm Care organised by the International Long-term care Policy Network (ILPN). We would like to thank you for the large number of high-quality submissions we received following our call for abstracts. We hope that you agree with us that the content of this year’s programme is really exciting. The scheduled sessions will span all key areas of long-term care (LTC) policy, and should provide an excellent opportunity to discuss the latest research evidence on how to organise, deliver, fund and regulate LTC services. Following our escapade into the Law Society in 2012, this year we return to the LSE as the physical base of the conference. We hope that you will find the rooms and facilities to your satisfaction. Further on in this booklet you can find information on how to access key resources at the LSE, and please contact any of the ILPN staff if you require any further help. We very much hope that you will be able to join us for the conference dinner on Tuesday in the lovely surroundings of Gray’s Inn, one of the oldest Law Inns in London, as well as to attend the ASCOT reception on Monday at the LSE, where colleagues will be introducing some of latest developments in the social care related quality of life indicator. You might also notice Nat Al-Tahhan at her laptop in some of the sessions. She will be taking visual notes of some of the key messages from the conference presentations. Some examples from this will be shown during the lunch break on Tuesday 2 September, as well as via Twitter (#ilpn2014). As always, we are very keen to get your views about how to improve the network and how to be most useful to you, so do not hesitate to contact us with your suggestions and ideas; and if you are not a member, join today. We hope you have a really stimulating and enjoyable time! Dr José-Luis Fernández - Director of ILPN
