Description, Abstract, or Artist's Statement

This is a brief overview of Sweden and one of its major public health issues--the elderly care system. This includes information on the location of Sweden, its population, and the type of government established. The public health issue Sweden is facing is the lack of quality elderly care with its growing elderly population. The affected group is the elderly community. There are several challenges faced in order to improve the quality of elderly care. Chronic conditions in this population have been increasing and are requiring more complex health services. A reform needs to be established by the government to require higher education for staff and nurses working in any elderly care facility.
