Study tours offer a unique opportunity to meet integrated care pioneers in their natural environment and to experience and learn about integrated care practices from national and regional innovations. They are designed to support clinicians, managers and policy-makers with an interest and responsibility in the successful adoption of integrated care in policy and practice. Designed to be live case studies, the study visits offer the possibility to discuss regional and country-level strategies with the responsible decision makers, assess the barriers, facilitators and key drivers for integrated care at a regional and local level and reflect upon the transferability of lessons learned in moderated discussions and workshops.
The ICIC17 Three Country Study Tour will visit Scotland, England and Wales and seeks to examine the leadership and management of integrated care in these regions. Sessions will focus on the development of new models and approaches to care for older people with complex needs including the use of new technologies. Participants will also have the oppotunity to hear from reference sites from within the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP on AHA) B3 Action Group on Integrated Care.
