Describe how services work to provide integrated health and social care-

Explore the experiences of integrated care from the user and carer perspective-

Identify the impediments to effective working and how to overcome them.

Assess the extent to which these services are person-centred.

Use this data to identify quality indicators for integrated care for use in policy making and service planning
