Health and care workers are our greatest asset, working alongside family carers, community partners and local networks of support. However, without reforms, sustaining the workforce is also one of our greatest challenges.
Core competencies for integrated care are highly relational: patient advocacy, communication, interdisciplinary working, people-centred care, and continuous learning. Leading and managing transformational change is a collective responsibility and sustainable improvements will only take place if a flexible approach to driving the change is embedded. Enabling individuals and the system to be their own change agents will create an environment ...Read more
The current COVID-19 emergency presents new and unique challenges for individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia (ADRD) as well as the family and friends providing care for them.
Providers and health plans can play a key role in supporting individuals with ADRD and their caregivers as they navigate these challenges. This webinar provided information on how COVID-19 affects and presents in people with ADRD, strategies for family and friend caregivers for supporting those with ADRD living at home during COVID-19, and opportunities for health care systems to prepare to meet the needs of people with ADRD diagnosed ...Read more
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 ...

Community resilience refers to the sustained ability of a community to respond to, withstand and recover from shocks and stressors. In Australia, and other countries, natural disasters such as drought, bushfires, floods, earthquakes and infectious disease outbreaks such as COVID-19 are likely to have a sustained and negative impact on the health and wellbeing of people over a prolonged period of time. This webinar examined evidence and personal experiences in supporting community resilience as a means of strengthening communities to withstand public health crises before, during and after emergencies.

There is a growing imperative to place people and communities, and what matters to them, at the centre of health and care services. The World Health Organisation (WHO) emphasises the need to engage and empower people as partners in creating and maintaining their health and wellbeing. The Astana Declaration (2018) advocates for policies that embed integrated care in strong, community-oriented and community led primary care. This is particularly important for people with multiple health conditions and/ or care needs managed by different providers, often through many unconnected episodes of care. Continuity and collaborative care, through planning, monitoring and review are ...
High performing health and social care systems provide exceptional care, quality and experiences for patients, caregivers and providers. Pivotal to this, is how we work across health and social care as one team. The need for integrated care is a global priority and is poised to address fragmentation and accelerate the improvements that are needed. During a global pandemic, the need to work as an integrated system is even more pressing and gives us an opportunity to pause, reflect and respond.
In situations where systems are subjected to unprecedented pressure, organizations and sectors may respond from the lens of what ...

Person-centred care is an emerging concept in health care. Many people ask what is new about it, and as a matter of fact many health care professionals believe that they work in a person-centred way already. But shifting to a person-centred care practice often involves a profound change in culture and structure, and the key is a different approach in seeing the patient as a partner. The main thing is about being able to listen. Being able to listen to the patient and co-create a care plan; to create a partnership in health care.
