International Summer School on Integrated Care (ISSIC23)
IFIC’s International Summer School on Integrated Care (ISSIC23) was held in Oxford in June 2023. We were joined by global leaders and managers in Integrated Care for five face-to-face days.
IFIC’s Summer School has attracted participants from around the world since it was launched in 2017. It has been developed for those who are involved in designing, implementing, leading and/or managing integrated care approaches and want to learn more about the initiatives, new practices and evidence on Integrated Care across the globe. Specifically it provides a unique opportunity for networking and discussing real-world problems and share learning with other participants and IFIC’s expert faculty.
The course is taught by senior academics and practitioners in different areas of Integrated Care including IFIC’s team, and holds a combination of lectures, workshops and practical exercises. Participants are immersed in the expertise of the Foundation and ISSIC23 is a space for participants to share their experiences, concerns, and learning with the rest of the participants.
The International Summer School on Integrated Care is designed as a stand-alone education and training course and is eligible for Continuous Professional Development (CPD) or Continuous Medical Education (CME) credits for professionals and managers.
International Summer School on Integrated Care Evaluation (ISSIC23-E )
In July 2023 we introduced the International Summer School on Integrated Care Evaluation (ISSIC23-E ). This 3-day course provided an overview on how to design and conduct an evaluation of integrated care approaches. ISSIC23-E aimed to improve participants’ skills to understand the complexity of integrated care with the capacity to extract main learning and practical information to inform decision-makers in future development of integrated care. The course is taught by senior academics and IFIC’s own team of evaluators with experience of evaluating Integrated Care in multiple contexts.
This course could be of interest for health and social care practitioners, clinicians, researchers and managers who want to strengthen their competencies in analysing and evaluating integrated care practices.
Our intensive courses demand a high level of engagement and preparation from participants, but the reward is an enriching and career-enhancing experience.
