Barriers in Integrative Care
The qualitative study “Collaborate across silos: Perceived barriers to integration of care for the elderly from the perspectives of service providers” identifies the barriers that currently hinder collaboration between health care and social care services for the ageing population in Hong Kong. The identification of such barriers is insightful and practical as it indicates what should be avoided, and what could be done in terms of design and redesign of measures and services in future policy framework (Int J Health Plann Manage. 2018 Apr 27. doi: 10.1002/hpm.2534. [Epub ahead of print]).
