This study reports on the quality indicators that were collected by the ANCIEN project partners in each country considered in Work Package 5 (Quality in Long-Term Care). The main contribution of this report is a classification of the quality assurance indicators in different European countries according to three dimensions: organisation type (indicators applied to formal institutional care – FIC, formal home-based care – FHBC, formal home nursing care - FHNC, and informal home care - IHC); quality dimensions (indicators about effectiveness, safety, patient value responsiveness, or coordination) and system dimensions (input, process, or outcome indicators). The countries that provided quality indicators, which are used at a national level or are recommended to be used at a local level by a national authority, are: Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. In total, we collected 390 quality indicators. Each quality indicator has been assigned to one or more options in each dimension.
