Integrated Care: A Global Phenomenon

IFIC Associate Robin Miller, also Joint Editor in Chief of the International Journal of Integrated Care, will be in Australia in June to deliver a masterclass on ‘Creating high quality integrated care that delivers outcomes’.

Aimed at health and social care professionals, including clinicians, leaders, senior managers and commissioners, who have an interest and/or role in developing integrated care within their organisation or care setting, this two-day course takes place in Canberra on June 27 and 28.

Integrated care has become a global phenomenon with countries seeking to make health and care systems both co-ordinated and person-centred. Australia is no exception, and following the Productivity Commission’s recent ‘productivity review’, integrated care has been highlighted as a key priority.

The arguments for integration are many, including ageing demographics, the increasing complexity of conditions, continued health inequalities and poor patient experience; all in a system where health and care services struggle to collaborate successfully across organisational and sectoral boundaries.

Learn more about how successfully addressing fragmentation in pathways, practice and purposes would potentially improve outcomes and make services more effective and efficient.

This masterclass is led by internationally respected researchers in their field, Dr Robin Miller, of the University of Birmingham, UK, and Associate Professor Helen Dickinson, and Dr Karen Gardner, both of UNSW Canberra.
