About the seminar

In this webinar I will present on ongoing research on the STRiDE England project, which looks at individual experiences as a lens through which to analyse inequalities in dementia care at local and national level in England, and then I will reflect on international lessons from the COVID pandemic in relation to how to improve and strengthen care systems and introduce the Global Observatory of Long-Term Care.

About the presenter

Adelina Comas-Herrera is the director of the Global Observatory of Long-Term Care, a platform to support cross-national learning to improve and strengthen care systems. The platform aims to identify shared challenges in relation to Long-Term Care and showcase how different countries and localities are addressing them, sharing research evidence and supporting collaborations. She is an assistant professorial research fellow at the Care Policy and Evaluation Centre, at the London School of Economics.

Her background is in economics and she has worked on simulation models to project the future costs of Long-Term Care in the UK and other countries, as well as projections focused on dementia. Her main areas of interest are Long-Term Care financing, Long-Term Care policy and systems, and dementia care. 

She was co-lead of the Strengthening Responses to Dementia in developing countries research project (STRiDE) and she is currently working on a project looking at what lessons the social care sector in England can learn from the COVID-19 experience of other countries, and on STRiDE England, a project that aims to generate evidence to strengthen the response to dementia and reduce inequalities in access to care, treatment and support.
