24th International Conference on Integrated Care

The 24th International Conference on Integrated Care (ICIC24) in partnership with IFIC Ireland and the International Journal of Integrated Care (IJIC) and supported by the Department of Health, Northern Ireland and Visit Belfast  took place in ICC Belfast on 22-24 April 2024, with the overarching theme ‘Taking the leap: making integrated care a reality for people and communities’, the conference brought together leaders, researchers, clinicians, managers, community representatives, patients and caregivers from around the world who are engaged in the design and delivery of integrated health and care.

At this time Northern Ireland  was going through a transformative change in the movement towards an integrated care approach to the planning, management and delivery of health and care services. A new Integrated Care System (ICS) model in Northern Ireland (NI) is being developed which will transform the existing commissioning arrangements and processes. As many regions make this shift towards new models of care, that are people-centred and community-driven, this conference offered the opportunity to learn from the experience of others, reflect on change, and celebrate the shift forward in the movement to provide more co-ordinated, person-centred care for people and communities all around the world.

Scientific Committee

The International Scientific Committee (ICS), chaired by Professor Deirdre Heenan, Professor of Social Policy at Ulster University, choose abstracts of good practice in research, policy, practice and education from around the world. This was a competitive process so presenters were asked to take time in understanding the guidelines and to follow the process carefully.


Organising Committee

The Organising Committee leads the planning, organisation, implementation and assessment of the conference. The organising committee work alongside and supports the work of the Scientific Committee.

The Organising Committee for this conference was formed from IFIC’s core team led by Fiona Lyne, Conference Director and representatives from our co-hosts IFIC Ireland, International Foundation for Integrated Care (IJIC), Department of Health, Northern Ireland and Visit Belfast.

Patients Included

ICIC24 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.
