IFIC Ireland in association with the International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC) presents “Transforming Health and Social Care across Ireland: Delivering Lifelong People-centred Care” on Thursday, 10 March 2022 in O’Reilly Hall University College Dublin.
The forum is attended by up to 300 delegates from across the island of Ireland and includes Health and Social Care Services Mangers, Clinicians and System leads, Academics leading in the field of integrated care, and a wide range of not for profit patient representative organisations and private sector providers of care services.
A number of policy frameworks have recently been developed to support the movement towards a more coordinated and holistic approach to improving population across the island of Ireland. The Sláintecare report, a ten-year strategy for health care and health policy in Ireland, emphasises the importance of integrated care and shifting care out of hospitals and into the primary and community settings, with timely access to quality, affordable care for all Ireland’s residents. Over a ten-year period, Slaintecare will deliver a universal health service that offers the right care, in the right place, at the right time, with a priority focus on developing primary and community services (See the 2021 – 2023 Implementation Strategy and Action Plan). In Northern Ireland, the Department of Health is undertaking a transition to a new Integrated Care System driven through planning, managing and delivering health and social care to a local population based on a population health approach supported by regional and specialised services planned, managed and delivered at a regional level.
To make this happen, it is important that those at the forefront of taking integrated care forward are enabled to share their experience, success and failures with others. Spread and sustainability can be accelerated if innovators and leaders are supported to work together through which information and intelligence can be shared. This helps to avoid the same mistakes being made, can avoid unnecessary duplication of effort and can help build commitment by enabling leaders to work together in a community of practice.
