Meeting the health, social care and welfare services information needs of older people in Ireland.
Ruddle, Helen; Prizeman, Geraldine; Haslett, Deirdre; Mulvihill, Ray; Kelly, Edwina
As Chairperson of the National Council on Ageing and Older People, it gives me great pleasure to introduce this report, Meeting the Health, Social Care and Welfare Services Information Needs of Older People in Ireland. The Council has asserted, in previous reports in the past, the need to improve information provision for older people in order to enable them to make informed decisions in relation to their health, social care and welfare services needs and preferences so that they can become partners in their own care. This is consistent with current policy initiatives intended to re-orientate services more towards the older person and to place him/her at the heart of service planning, delivery and evaluation.
