The following slides show the dimensions and items of the conceptual framework developed and validated within the WP11 of the EU-funded Project INTEGRATE that concluded in August 2016.
The methodologic aspects in the development and validation of the framework are explained in the official Project report to the EU and will be published in forthcoming academic papers.
The framework provides an evidence-based understanding of the key dimensions and items of integrated care that the research showed were associated with successful implementation.
The different framework dimensions and items were see to be both relevant and important in different country-contexts and to different disease- and condition-specific population groups.
The framework aims to provide a conceptual basis for reflecting on the design and implementation of new integrated care programs/projects.
