In September 2016, a two-day workshop in Ljubljana, reviewed quality indicators for assessment of quality of care, paving the way for a more effective national system.

In April 2016, the Group organised a seminar in Rome to discuss the best methods to assess integrated care, together with Italian civil servants and health professionals engaged in setting up and running integrated care models.
