What are innovative ways we can apply quasi-experimental methods to long-term care research? Connect with the Quasi-Experimental Methods Interest Group to find out!

Many older people choose to stay at home as they age. There is potential to use quasi-experimental methods to better understand the reasons behind this, and implications for long-term care. The Global Observatory of Long-Term Care (GOLTC) will be hosting a webinar to bring together researchers, policymakers, and practitioners to explore these methods and what they have shown us about Ageing in Place (AIP).

The webinar will cover:
  1. Introduction to the Global Observatory of Long-Term Care and welcome (Adelina Comas-Herrera, Care Policy and Evaluation Centre (CPEC), LSE)
  2. Introduction to the GOLTC Quasi-Experimental Methods Interest Group (Javiera Cartagena-Farias, Care Policy and Evaluation Centre (CPEC), LSE)
  3. Presentation: Health shocks and housing downsizing: How persistent is ‘ageing in place’? (Cristina Vilaplana Prieto, University of Murcia, Spain)
  4. Discussion: What is the quasi-experimental methods interest group and how can quantitative policy evaluation methods contribute to research quality, ultimately enhancing the quality of care? (Chair: Bram Wouterse, Erasmus University Rotterdam)
