The current COVID-19 pandemic has rapidly impacted every area of our lives and, in particular, is creating an unprecedented challenge to our health and care systems worldwide. Health and care systems across the globe are taking numerous measures to respond to the urgent care needs of those impacted by COVID-19, while at the same time trying to reduce the long-term impact on vulnerable people as much as possible. IFIC recognizes the extraordinary pressures that this crisis has imposed on health and care decision-makers, but particularly on system managers and frontline staff.
The International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC) is well aware that COVID-19 impacts are highly localized and reflect both the health and care systems and population demographics in each region and country. Since the first COVID-19 cases appeared, countries have developed different strategies and responses to cope with the pandemic. At the same time, we have witnessed a wide range of innovations and willingness to adapt to these challenging times.
Webinars will enable health and care decision-makers and managers, and the integrated care community to hear about the integrated care approaches implemented and considerations made to address people’s continued care and support needs beyond the public health issues and crisis management The webinar will include an opportunity to ask questions and share experiences and will highlight IFIC’s COVID-19 Knowledge Exchange Platform to facilitate the sharing of people’s experiences of responding to the situation.
