The consortium of the Appropriate Care Pathway (APPCARE) project co-funded by the Health Programme organised its final conference at the Committee of the Regions, on 23rd May 2019 in Brussels. The event was held in collaboration with a number of European networks and EU funded projects such as:
- Fighting Against Loneliness (FILO) Erasmus project
- European Network of Social Authorities (ENSA)
- European Local Inclusion and Social Action Network (ELISAN)
- Programma Mattone Internazionale Salute (PRO.M.I.S)

The objective of the conference was to present the project results and findings on the deployment of care pathways to reduce hospital admissions in 3 pilot regions: Italy, Spain, and the Netherlands. In addition, selected EU funded projects focusing on integration of health and social care services were invited to share their experience and learning, including SEFAC project (https://sefacproject.eu/about-sefac/), EFFICHRONIC (www.effichronic.eu) and SCIROCCO Exchange. From the SCIROCCO Exchange perspective, the project co-ordinator Dr Andrea Pavlickova shared with the participants the experience in developing SCIROCCO self-assessment tool to assess the readiness of European regions and organisations to adopt and scale-up integrated care.
