    Call for chapters – new book on “Designing Integrated Care Ecosystems”

    This book will advance the literature on multi-organisational and multi-actor networks of care (i.e. care ecosystems) by specifically addressing the dual questions of: • how do we (re)organize current care systems towards more integrated, more effective care provision • and how do we do this in ways that benefit patients and their families, while also significantly increasing the quality of life for those who work within the care ecosystem.
