Periodic Report 1 - SHELTER (Services and health for elderly in long term care)

Project ID: 223115
Funded under: FP7-HEALTH


This is the periodic report of the SHELTER project, which proposed to implement and apply the Minimum data set (MDS) Long term care residents (LTCF) on a large scale, leading to the creation of a database that will allow unprecedented opportunities to measure residents outcomes, identify predictors of outcomes, develop eligibility criteria and resource utilisation groupings, monitor service delivery and analyse indicators of quality of care.

The report begins with explaining the challenges in comparing residents and evaluating nursing home care between countries and defines where the project's objectives stand. It then presents the objectives that have been achieved during the first 18 months of the project and refers to the remaining goals.
