New Publication, 2022 Jan 27
Pre-print of the new publication of Dr. Myo Nyein Aung, PI of DIHAC study is now in Research Square. Title of the article is “Effectiveness of Community Integrated Intermediary Care (CIIC) Service Model to Enhance Family-Based Long-Term Care for Thai Older Adults in Chiang Mai, Thailand: A Cluster Randomized Controlled Trial TCTR20190412004”. It is being peer-reviewed for the journal, BMC Health Policy and System.
It is implementation research, a cluster randomized controlled trial funded by the World Health Organization Centre for Health Development (WHO Kobe Centre). Department of Health Service Support, Ministry of Health, Thailand, and Chiang Mai Rajabhat University, Thailand collaborated with Juntendo University in the study. The intervention is an innovative, long term care model which is expected to be the model for universal access to long term care in Thailand and countries with similar contexts. Many countries with rapid population ageing still do not have a system for long-term care or programs in place. CIIC is a new model that can integrate primary health care, long term care and health promotion for the communities in such setting. It is expected to contribute to the global response in health systems towards healthy ageing communities, in the era of COVID-19 pandemic and post pandemic new-normal.
