23/06/2019 - 29/06/2019 - International Summer School Integrated Care (ISSIC)
Integrated care is gradually moving out of its niche and into the focus of decision makers, clinicians and managers around the world. This has also spiked interest in how theories, concepts and components of integrated care can be operationalized and successfully implemented in practice. While there is now sufficient evidence available to support the introduction of integrated care in principle, still many question marks remain around the contextualization and evaluation of such initiatives. In addition, the move from disease-focused to population management approaches including active participation of patients and communities further adds to the complexities. This year’s summer school will discuss all of these challenges with leaders in this field whilst also introducing participants to a new module on leadership and managing change.
