Research and the local planning of services for elderly people: an interactive approach

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

The assessment of need and the vested interests of powerful actors constitute two major problems in the local planning of services for elderly people. In this article the contribution of applied research to these planning processes is explored by means of a case study into care delivery to long term elderly patients. Triangulation, a focus on person-environment dynamics and a close interaction between the researchers and significant actors in the policy process, enhance the applicability of the research. In the current study these strategies failed to resolve completely the central policy question, but they certainly brought more rational elements into the policy process. -from Author
