ICIC21 Virtual Conference – May 2021
In 2021 the 21st International Conference on Integrated Care (ICIC21) “Realising the true value of Integrated Care” took place as a virtual conference, co-hosted with our hubs and collaborative centres IFIC Scotland, IFIC Australia, IFIC Ireland, IFIC Canada and IFIC Latin America. The conference ran across the whole month of May taking place across various time zones.
Presenters pre-record their presentations and were available to all delegates to access in their own time. During the live sessions successful authors were asked to reduce the time of their presentation to key points and sessions were ran interactively hosted by two or more chairs leading a discussion with paper presenters. This was much more enjoyable for the viewer and more engaging from the audience for presenters by using this format.
9 Pillars of Integrated Care
1. Shared values and vision
2. Population health and care needs and local context
3. People as partners in health and care
4. Resilient communities and new alliances
5. Workforce capacity and capability
The Scientific Committee is the regular advisory committee that oversees the development of the programme and ensures that it balances scientific, policy and practical knowledge and meets the expectations of the members of Integrated Care community and related professional networks.
