IFIC Annual Survey 2022: Integrated Care Across the World
In March 2022, the International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC) launched its first survey across its network asking people to share their views on what integrated care means to them and the features of integrated care that they thought were most important in their experience and context.
At IFIC we think it is important that we understand how this concept is being used in practice to change and improve care for people and communities. We believe that as both the science and practice of integrated care evolve over time, the definition of integrated care is and will probably always be a continuous conceptual challenge for the movement. To understand this evolution, we are embarking on a project that will annually assess our network’s emergent set of practices around integrated care.
IFIC are delighted to publish the results of this first survey. It provides us as a Foundation with important information to guide our work including identifying gaps in our knowledge about the science and practice of integrated care. We look forward to continuing this work and publishing an updated report annually.
On Tuesday, 1 November 9am London | 10am Madrid | 8pm Sydney, you are invited to join Dr Niamh Lennox-Chhugani, Chief Executive of the International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC) who will be in conversation with Professor Nicholas Goodwin, Director, Central Coast Research Institute at the University of Newcastle and Co Editor in Chief of the International Journal of Integrated Care (IJIC) to discuss the 2022 survey results. Niamh and Nick will consider the following:
- Did the survey confirm what we already know?
- Did the survey reveal anything that surprised us?
- What did the survey tell us about integrated care research and practice today and where it could usefully focus on in the future?
They will then focus specifically on the concept of person or people centred care and ask where are we today and what needs to happen to make this real? And what might the survey look like next year and into the future to better support the advancement of integrated care around the world?
Delegates are encouraged to join the discussion and we invite you to register to secure your place.
