APIC3 Sydney, Australia – 13-15 November 2023
3rd Asia Pacific Conference on Integrated Care
Building healthcare system sustainability and resilience
The International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC) in partnership with IFIC Australia and the International Journal of Integrated Care (IJIC) and supported by University of Sydney, Central Coast Research Institute (CCRI), University of Newcastle, Central Coast Local Health District, Sydney Local Health District, South Eastern Sydney Local Health District, Children’s Health Queensland, Health Consumers NSW, Central and Eastern Sydney PHN presented the 3rd Asia Pacific Conference on Integrated Care (APIC3) “Building healthcare system sustainability and resilience” which took place at the Wesley Conference Centre in Sydney on 13-15 November 2023.
To create truly sustainable and resilient health and care systems that really address health inequalities, a system-wide transformation is needed. A new focus on preventative health, particularly for socially and economically disadvantaged communities is required to support better outcomes for all. This conference will focus on taking an equitable approach to designing and delivering health and care services, working across multiple organisations, health and care agencies, but also policing and housing and other support agencies, and including the NGO and the community sector. A system-wide approach is immediately required to achieve better outcomes for individual consumers and the wider population.
With thanks to all our APIC3 contributors!

APIC3 is co-designed with patients and caregivers and achieves Patients Included designation. Special consideration is given to papers that demonstrate active people involvement and engagement in either or all of design, implementation and evaluation. Patient and Caregivers attend the conference for free, but we cannot cover accommodation and travel costs. We encourage papers from patient and caregivers, but also suggest that health and care researchers and practitioners should encourage patient and caregiver partners to co-present where appropriate and fund travel and accommodation costs if possible.
