The core mission of IFIC Australia is to develop capacity and capabilities in Australia and the Asia Pacific Region in the design and delivery of integrated care. IFIC Australia seeks to achieve this by providing a platform to develop and exchange ideas and promote activities in the region in keeping with IFIC’s mission.
IFIC Australia was founded in November 2015 as a Collaborative Centre between IFIC and the Centre for Rural and Remote Mental Health (CRRMH) at the University of Newcastle, NSW. IFIC Australia has since supported a series of activities to promote and support integrated care in Australia and the Asia-Pacific Region.
IFIC Australia is supported by the IFIC Australia Committee, comprising the organizing parties of the IFIC Australia Collaborating Centre together with its associates, Partners.
These meetings will be supported by an appointed Chair (currently Dr Nick Goodwin
Director, Central Coast Research Institute, University of Newcastle) and will meet at least quarterly (face-to-face and/or remotely) to discuss and prioritize IFIC Australia’s areas of work.
