    Abstract

    This anthology is part of the CareSam project, which focuses on the elderly sector in Sweden and Denmark and is financed by the EU-Interreg I VA. The purpose of this project is to establish a CareSam network in the Øresund region. This network will bring together interest groups in order to create in-service training, identify opportunities for cooperation, and provide a two-way knowledge transfer within the region. The project will make substantial and transparent contributions to the development of quality assessment for public-sector elderly care in the region. Even though there are many similarities between Sweden and Denmark, there is significant potential for knowledge transfer within the elderly sector – Sweden and Denmark have different traditions when it comes to client influence, education systems, service and attitudes. CareSam is a cooperative initiative between Malmö University, Sweden (www.mah.se) and Roskilde University, Denmark (www.ruc.dk), as well as Scania´s Association of Local Authorities, Sweden (www.kfsk.se) and Metropol College, Denmark (www.phmetropol.dk). The project content includes theoretical inputs, evaluation and process work. The goals of the project are to strengthen the day-to-day integration of the elderly sector in the Øresund region, to establish a functional network, and to promote knowledge acquisition in the following areas: • Cultural knowledge and the future of elderly care in the Øresund region • Education in the elderly sector • Dementia in the elderly and its impact on staff
