There are many innovations in integrated care ongoing in Australia and worldwide, but most often there is a lack of awareness or appreciation of these projects in how they have been designed and implemented and the impact they have made. One of the strategic priorities for IFIC Australia in 2018/19 has been to initiate a mapping exercise to collate innovative case studies in integrated care from across Australia and in this newsletter we publish a first collection of case studies pioneered by Children’s Health Queensland and partners.
Going forward, IFIC Australia will be partnering with IFIC Canada and other IFIC hubs across Europe to develop a common approach to identify and assess innovative case studies to develop a database of global initiatives. The initiative will be launched in October 2019 across the IFIC network as a means to showcase innovation and bring new knowledge together in a comparable format. For more information, or to make an expression of interest to submit your published and/or unpublished case studies, please contact Edelweiss Aldasoro at email@example.com
The case studies are available to download here
