Plans for this year’s International Summer School, ISSIC18, in Oxford, are being finalised and IFIC is looking forwards to welcoming delegates.
This sell-out event has attracted a diverse group with participants from Australia to Canada, Brunei, Japan, all over Europe, as well as Tunisia.
We are delighted to announce Anne Hendry, IFIC Scotland’s lead, has joined the list of prestigious speakers during the week-long course, as well as Nuria Toro from the World Health Organisation in Geneva.
They will present alongside internationally renowned Integrated Care experts Dr Viktoria Stein and Dr Nick Goodwin, IFIC’s Director of Education and Training and IFIC CEO respectively, Dr Ellen Nolte and Dr Apostolos Tsiachristas.
Anne, an IFIC Senior Associate, clinical Lead for Integrated Care and Work Package Leader in the European Joint Action, will discuss how you provide continuity of care, intermediate care, care transitions and care pathways and the role of hospitals in the continuum.
Colleagues Dr Nolte, head of London hubs of the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, based at the LSE and London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, will speak about ‘Measuring the Performance of Integrated Care’ and Dr Tsiachristas, a senior researcher at the Health Economics Research Centre (HERC), University of Oxford, will discuss ‘Incentives for Integrated Care’.
Dr Stein said: “We are excited to welcome a really diverse group of participants this year. Their eclectic mix demonstrates that integrated care has really spread across the globe and is as relevant in more advanced health systems, as it is in lower income countries. With ISSIC we are filling a vital gap in education and training for senior staff and managers, most notably by providing them with a deep dive into integrated care, networking and knowledge exchange”
The annual Summer School takes place from 24 to 29 June 2018, in the inspiring city of Oxford at Wolfson College, part of the University of Oxford.
