We are excited to announce the next webinar from the Global Observatory of Long Term Care (GOLTC), which will be convened by the Economics of Long Term Care interest group. 

Economics of Long-Term Care: Long-Term Care as a market?

GOLTC Economics of LTC Interest Group webinar

  • Date: Tuesday 7th March 2024
  • Time: 14:00 – 15:00 GMT (check your local time here)
  • Link: Register to join us on Zoom.

What are the features of the market for long-term care, and how can we understand the economics thereof?

In this Global Observatory of Long-Term Care (GOLTC) webinar, Dr Lemmon and Prof Bell will summarise their chapter, ‘The Economics of Long-Term Care’, in the recently published Routledge Handbook of the Economics of Ageing, defining features of the market for LTC compared to the market for health care, as well as an overview of the literature. We will then have an interactive discussion about the Economics of Long-Term Care (ELTC) interest group, and the best ways to collectively address the research challenges in this emerging field.

The webinar will cover:

  1. Welcome and introduction to the GOLTC (Adelina Comas-Herrera, Care Policy and Evaluation Centre (CPEC), LSE, UK)
  2. Introduction to the ELTC Interest Group (Sedighe Hosseini Jebeli, Newcastle University, UK)
  3. Presentation: The Economics of Long-Term Care: Elizabeth Lemmon (University of Edinburgh, UK) and David Bell (University of Stirling, UK)
  4. Q&A chaired by Courtney Van Houtven (Duke University and US Veteran Affairs, US)
  5. Discussion on what the Economics of Long-Term Care interest group can do, reflecting on some of the research challenges in the field of Economics of Long-Term Care, led by Cassandra Simmons (European Centre for Social Welfare Policy and Research, Austria)
