TeNDER successfully completes pre-piloting phase. An Integrated Health Care model for patients with neurodegenerative and cardiovascular conditions

affecTive basEd iNtegrateD carE for betteR Quality of Life (TeNDER) is a multi-sectoral project funded by Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (end 2019 to end 2022), to develop an integrated care model to manage multi-morbidity in patients with Alzheimer’s disease (and other forms of dementia), Parkinson’s disease, and cardiovascular disease. By combining user-friendly technologies and substantial research experience, TeNDER project aims to help improve the quality of life of patients and those who surround them.

21st International Conference on Integrated Care (ICIC21)

In 2021 the 21st International Conference on Integrated Care (ICIC21) “Realising the true value of Integrated Care” will be run as a virtual conference, co-hosted with our hubs and collaborative centres IFIC Scotland, IFIC Australia, IFIC Ireland, IFIC Canada and IFIC Latin America. We have received a huge volume of feedback from our ICIC20 conference which took place in September and based on those suggestions we will be amending how the programme is designed and accessed to best suit a virtual format. The main change from ICIC20 is that the conference will run across the whole month of May limited to 4 hour sessions taking place across various time zones.

Presenters will once again be asked to pre-record their content, however in this conference we will make those recordings available to delegates to access in their own time and will be posted to our Knowledge Tree after the conference to ...

Digital Solutions: Adoption, Adaptation and their role in post-Covid19 health and social care delivery

As each integrated care building block is reliant on information, digital solutions could be seen as the cement that holds the blocks together. Albeit, the arguments for greater use and investment have become increasingly compelling, the rate of adoption remains below expectations; that is until COVID-19.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, countries have seen a rapid citizen-led proliferation of digital solutions being used for remote working, socialisation between family, friends and communities, and education, to name but a few. This rapid pace of change has been mirrored by national and local government and public health through the use of social media to effectively reach individuals to provide guidance, support, collect well-being and COVID infection data, and undertake tracing through Apps. Furthermore, many countries have created fully functioning field hospitals with IT departments working around the clock to ensure these new care facilities can be up and running to provide safe ...

Realising the True Value of Integrated Care: Beyond COVID-19

Stronger and more resilient care systems and communities are better able to cope, respond and adapt to new challenges and crises such as the current COVID-19 pandemic. They are able to quickly come together to ‘act as one’ and collaborate across disciplines and sectors towards a common goal. This is the essence of integrated care and this is what the International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC) stands for – creating a more connected health and care system.
