The SPIM EU project aims at contributing to the reduction of cardio-metabolic morbidity and mortality in EU Member States by establishing the feasibility of implementing innovative selective prevention actions in primary care. In addition, the SPIM EU project will provide a toolbox for tailoring selective prevention actions in all EU Member States. The evidence based guideline of the Dutch College of General Practitioners represents an innovative approach for efficiently implementing selective prevention by a stepwise identification process of persons at high risk in the general population. However, successful implementation of this approach in EU Member States with different health care systems calls for tailoring of this action.The SPIM EU project includes five Work Packages (WP4-WP8), in addition to three horizontal Work Packages. WP4 includes the mapping of existing selective prevention programs in all EU Member States, and their strengths and weaknesses. In WP5 a systematic literature review will be conducted to summarize the knowledge from the literature about facilitating and hampering factors in implementing selective prevention programs and to identify determinants of their uptake and compliance. WP6 includes a survey among primary health care professionals and a sample of the general population in five EU Member States [SWE, DNK, NLD, CZE, GRE] to gain more insight into the task perceptions and attitudes towards selective prevention actions. In WP7 the results of WP4-WP6 will be collated and synthesized into tailored designs for implementing selective prevention actions (inspired by the Dutch guideline) in the five fore-mentioned EU Member States with the aim to test their feasibility. The feasibility tests are the core element of WP8. This will result in a toolbox of measures to tailor the implementation of selective prevention actions in all EU Member States taking their respective social, cultural, political and health care system contexts into account

The aim of this project was to achieve more transparency amongst the different regional health systems in Europe as well as to offer a platform on which regions can learn from each other using the variations of regional health care regulations and activities to improve health governance and public health. Regions which took part in the first part of the Benchmarking project formed the core project group and worked work together with an institute experienced in benchmarking and health policy (systems) research

The general aim of this project is to build a network on autoinflammatory diseases in childhood. In particular the project would like to complete and integrate already existing initiatives in this field with the following actions:
- sensitize paediatricians and paediatric rheumatologists to the prompt recognition of these diseases,
- give a proper information among families affected by these conditions,
- increase the knowledge on the clinical presentation, response to treatment and complications of theses rare disorders.

Ageing problems are a common challenge for Europe and health systems: higher frail population in need of long term care, chronic conditions requiring complex response from a wide range of health professionals, often characterized by fragmented and not appropriated care.
+65 patients access to ER more frequently; they stay longer to ER usually ending into ordinary admission, with an increasing risks of hospital-related adverse outcomes.
APPCARE project aims at creating a new model for the management of frail elderly people including
-standardized application of Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA)
-homogeneous and coordinated care pathway, shared among all the involved care givers, traced by the geriatrician on the basis of CGA and performed through the establishment of a care management program
particular hospital admission care path for +75 patients, with short intensive observation period
-close link hospital-territorial care
-frailty prevention program
to demonstrate how an innovative and comprehensive management of complex and co-morbid clinical situations, may maintain patient’s functional status in its clinical trajectory, optimizing health care systems. APPCARE will design the model on the basis of best practices already tested in the involved territories, to evaluate scalability of these existing strategies.
Relevance to 3^ Health Progr.: APPCARE model is built up in order to achieve a complete and coordinated standard of care for frail patients, where all the involved caregivers agree and follow a homogeneous care path traced by geriatric specialist. This is perfectly in line with the addressed topic, reflecting the EIPAHA strategic plan.
It answers the calls for
better cooperation and communication between primary healthcare professionals and geriatric professionals to deal with problems of frailty and comorbidity
reduction of unnecessary hospitalization and prevention of the related adverse outcomes
early diagnosis and screening for frailty risk facto
