Peer Review: Germany’s latest reforms of the long-term care system



This Peer Review provided an occasion to compare the latest German reforms in the area of long-term care to other Member States’ policies. German stakeholders presented an overview of good practices and to experts representing twelve other Member States, while these presented their responses to similar challenges. Ricardo Rodrigues contributed with his Thematic Discussion Paper to setting the scene. The paper outlines the policy context as well as similarities and differences in national approaches to expanding access to affordable care, to developing services in the community and to better integration of health and long-term care.

Gudrun Bauer and Kai Leichsenring moderated the discussions as part of the Mutual Learning Team that produced a short report with key policy messages of this Peer Review.
