ISO is holding an international workshop in the UK on Community-based Integrated Health and Care Services for Aged Societies. The purpose of the workshop is to develop an International Workshop Agreement (IWA) on Community-based integrated health and care services for aged societies.

Workshop details

Meeting date: 25 June 2015, 9.30am to 5pm.

Location: BSI Group, 389 Chiswick High Road, London, W4 4AL, United Kingdom. There will also be the opportunity to participate via WebEx.

IWA details

As a result of increased life expectancy, ‘aged societies’ have emerged in many countries. Measures to meet the needs of the global ageing population need to be addressed. The IWA will initiate an international discussion within the ISO structure on the shaping of aged societies in the future.

The IWA:

  • will bring together a focused group of experts to consider the principles that should shape the provision of community-based, integrated health and care services for aged societies
  • will provide a useful reference at a national level for those stakeholders with an interest in global solutions for aged societies, for example, health and social care providers and policy makers
  • may also form a basis for an ISO discussion on a future standardisation strategy and work programmes for this theme.
