ICIC23 Antwerp, Flanders – May 22-24 2023
23rd International Conference on Integrated Care
The 23rd International Conference on Integrated Care (ICIC23) in partnership with the Flanders Agency for Health and Care and Visit Flanders took place at Flanders Meeting & Convention Center Antwerp, Flanders on 22-24 May 2023. With the overarching theme ‘Care in action: how to work together, a participatory approach’, the conference brought together leaders, researchers, clinicians, managers, citizens, patients and caregivers from around the world who are engaged in the design and delivery of integrated health and social care.
The conference operated as a hybrid event. While we were very excited to be physically together in Antwerp, the hybrid format meant that people who did not wish to travel could join and present at the conference via video link and present their paper digitally.
The scientific committee for this conference was established from international experts who are leading in the field of Integrated Care. They accepted papers on research, policy, practice or education and specifically related to the Conference Themes and the 9 Pillars of Integrated Care. All accepted abstracts will be published in the International Journal of Integrated Care (IJIC) and recordings of presentations and workshops and all digital posters will be connected to the Knowledge Tree.
ICIC23 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.

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.
The Scientific Committee for this conference is formed from almost 50 international experts, policy makers and patient representatives from all over the world and is coordinated by Dr Edelweiss Aldasoro. These Integrated Care experts are part of IFIC’s global network and are a key driver of the movement for change. Scientific Committee members are involved in our Hub’s, SIG’s, ERPIC and other work. We are very grateful for their continued support.
