NACIC24 Calgary, Canada – 15-17 October 2024

The North American Conference on Integrated Care 2024

The North America Conference on Integrated Care (NACIC24) co-hosted with the International Foundation for Integrated Care, IFIC Canada, the North America Centre for Integrated Care and the International Journal of Integrated Care (IJIC) and the Health System Performance Network at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto will take place in the Westin Calgary, Canada from 15-17 October 2024. With the overarching theme ‘Creating Health with Integrated Care’, the conference will bring 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. The conference is kindly supported by our premier partners Health Standards Organization (HSO) and Accreditation Canada.

The conference will be organised around three core themes, 1) Human-level transformation for collective impact 2) Community-enabled population health and wellbeing and 3) Integrated teams and systems: navigating complexity and change. Each theme demonstrates components of IFIC 9 Pillars of Integrated care.

There are also three cross-cutting priorities that are central to the NACIC24 conference. The areas include 1) health equity 2) person and community centered partnership and 3) evaluation. These areas are pivotal to research and practice to advance integrated care and population health. Rather than denote as an individual conference theme, these priorities cut across and are embedded within each of the core themes. Further the first two priority areas of health equity and patient and caregiver partnership will be explicitly considered within the program planning and abstract review and selection process.

Call for papers is now open, deadline for submissions is Monday, 10 June.

Abstract Submission

The scientific committee for this conference has been established from international experts who are leading in the field of Integrated Care, and they are accepting paper submissions on research, policy, practice or education and specifically relating to the 9 Pillars of Integrated Care until Monday, 10 June. The full abstract should be limited to 500 words. All accepted abstracts will be published in the International Journal for Integrated Care (Impact factor 2.913) and recordings of presentations, workshops and all digital posters will be connected to the Knowledge Tree.

Special consideration is given to papers that can demonstrate active people involvement in either or all of design, implementation and evaluation!
Each abstract submitter is asked to chose one of the 9 Pillars that their paper is most relevant to, understanding that there will be overlap. This system will enable the programme committee and Special Interest Group leads, to group papers together in a way that works best for delegates to navigate the programme and maximize the learning opportunities. The full abstract should be limited to 500 words. Download Abstract Submission Guidelines.
