The 24th International Conference on Integrated Care (ICIC24) in partnership with IFIC Ireland and the International Journal of Integrated Care (IJIC) and supported by the Department of Health, Northern Ireland and Visit Belfast will take place in ICC Belfast on 22-24 April 2024, with the overarching theme ‘Taking the leap: making integrated care a reality for people and communities’, the conference will bring together leaders, researchers, clinicians, managers, community representatives, patients and caregivers from around the world who are engaged in the design and delivery of integrated health and care.
Right now Northern Ireland is going through a transformative change in the movement towards an integrated care approach to the planning, management and delivery of health and care services. A new Integrated Care System (ICS) model in Northern Ireland (NI) is being developed which will transform the existing commissioning arrangements and processes. As many regions make this shift towards new models of care, that are people-centred and community-driven, this conference offers the opportunity to learn from the experience of others, reflect on change, and celebrate the shift forward in the movement to provide more co-ordinated, person-centred care for people and communities all around the world.
