Co-designing an Integrated Care Network With People Living With Parkinson's Disease: From Patients' Narratives to Trajectory Analysis

An integrated care model for people living with Parkinson's disease (PD) offers the promise of meeting complex care needs in a person-centered way that addresses fragmentation and improves quality of life. The purpose of our research was to co-design a care delivery model that supports both social and medical care from the perspective of patients and care partners. In the first step of our co-design approach, participants from five countries were invited to share their experiences of living with PD during a narrative interview. A qualitative analysis of these narrative interviews based on the Corbin and Strauss model was done to map out patients' trajectories. Three typical trajectories were identified: (a) the "unpredictable" trajectory, (b) the "situated" trajectory, and (c) the "demanding" trajectory. Based on the analysis of these trajectories, we were able to integrate various patient experiences into the design of an integrated care network.

Integrated People-Centred Care in Canada – Policies, Standards, and Implementation Tools to Improve Outcomes

Despite the national and international policy commitment to implement integrated health systems, there is an absence of national standards that support evidence-based design, implementation, and monitoring for improvement. This manuscript outlines the policy context and the process taken to develop the IPCHS standard. Implementing integration strategies requires that we create and sustain a culture of continuous improvement and learning.

From People-Centred to People-Driven Care: Can Integrated Care Achieve its Promise without it?

In this editorial, we argue that people-centred care has often remained too passive, condemns patients and carers to subservient roles, and as a result preserves a power imbalance that favours systems and professionals over people and communities. For integrated care to reach its full potential, we instead advocate for a deliberate shift towards ‘people-driven’ care where people have more agency in participating in their health and greater power in decision-making.

Co-design with Integrated Care Teams: Establishing Information Needs

Co-design has been cited as playing a major role in the future of effective integrated care, however, there is a lack of reporting and reflection on the methods used. Information sharing is fundamental when working in integrated care, however sharing across professions, service settings and localities can be complex. Through co-design, we seek to establish a shared understanding of information needs within a newly formed integrated care team. In doing so we aim to inform future practice in the understanding of co-design.

'Walking-the-talk': How to co-design an innovative and sustainable integrated care learning programme

Integrated care facilitates better outcomes for patients and their family, health workforce and health and social care systems. Accordingly, integrated care is a global and inherent area of work for health professionals. Despite this, formal learning programmes for workforce development in integrated care are still rare. In this paper, I have shared lessons about developing an innovative and sustainable integrated care learning programme for teachers, practitioners and learners in integrated care discipline. These lessons are drawn from my experience of leading an integrated care specialisation programme (that sits at Australian Qualification Framework Level 9) at a public university in Australia. An integrated care learning programme should be designed with appropriate philosophies (e.g., social constructivism and connected learning) and relevant multidisciplinary content that addresses deficiencies in practices of integrated care. Moreover, the programme should aim for sustainability, through financial feasibility and continuity with offering of creative and effective solutions in ...
