The International Foundation for Integrated Care, in association with Edgehill University, are hosting a series of free webinars on “The Building Blocks of Integrated Care”.
Six webinars will run on a monthly basis from October – March, in the lead up a public lecture on 14 April 2016 at Edgehill University by Professor Jon Glasby entitled “If integration is the answer, what was the question? What next for health and social care partnerships“. The webinars are targeted at all those interested in improving their core knowledge of integrated care principles and techniques.
The webinar series will:
• Provide a comprehensive overview of the principles, models and building blocks of integrated care
• Highlight the financial, organisational, political and cultural aspects, which have to be taken into account when designing and implementing integrated care;
• Understand and identify challenges on different levels (patient to system; local to international)
• Illustrate pitfalls, lessons learned and success stories of integrated care initiatives with cases around the world
The webinars will all take place from 2pm – 3.30pm . They are free to view, although delegates must register in advance. There are limited number of spaces so if closer the time you find you are not able to make it please cancel your place to allow someone else to take up the spot.
