    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.

The project will make substantial and transparent contributions to the development of quality assessment for public-sector elderly care in the region.
