Abstract [en]

Multimorbidity, a condition common among older adults, may be regarded as a failure of a complex system. The aim of this study was to describe the core components in health and social care management for older adults with multimorbidity. A cross-sectional design included two methods: individual interviews and group discussions. A total of 105 participants included older adults with multimorbidity and their relatives, care staff, and health care policy makers. Data were analyzed using content analysis. The results show that seven core components comprise a multi-perspective view of health and social care management for older adults with multimorbidity: political steering, leadership, cooperation, competence, support for relatives, availability, and continuity. Steps should be taken to ensure that every older adult with multimorbidity has a treatment plan according to a multi-perspective view to prevent fragmentation of their health care. This study provides relevant evidence developing a multi-perspective model of health and social care management for older adults with multimorbidity.
