24th International Conference on Integrated Care is coming to Belfast 22-24 April 2024. Call for abstracts are now open until Friday, 24 November 2023.
The International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC) in partnership with IFIC Ireland and the International Journal of Integrated Care (IJIC) and supported by the Department of Health, Northern Ireland and Visit Belfast present the 24th International Conference on Integrated Care (ICIC24) which will take place in ICC Belfast on 22-24 April 2024, with the overarching theme ‘Taking the leap: making integrated care a reality for people and communities’, the conference will bring together leaders, researchers, clinicians, managers, community representatives, patients and caregivers from around the world who are engaged in the design and delivery of integrated health and care.
Right now Northern Ireland is going through a transformative change in the movement towards an integrated care approach to the planning, management and delivery of health and care services. A new Integrated Care System (ICS) model in Northern Ireland (NI) is being developed which will transform the existing commissioning arrangements and processes. As many regions make this shift towards new models of care, that are people-centred and community-driven, this conference offers the opportunity to learn from the experience of others, reflect on change, and celebrate the shift forward in the movement to provide more co-ordinated, person-centred care for people and communities all around the world.
The International Scientific Committee (ICS), chaired by Professor Deirdre Heenan, Professor of Social Policy at Ulster University, is now seeking abstracts of good practice in research, policy, practice and education from around the world. This is expected to be a competitive process so presenters are asked to take time in understanding the guidelines and to follow the process carefully. We are particularly keen to hear from our colleagues across Northern Ireland to celebrate the great achievements that have been made in the past 10 years towards integrated care in the region.
The conference is particularly organised around the following themes:
