dianagosalvez Diana Gosálvez Prados last modified 16/10/2015 14:37

Over the past decade many definitions, concepts and theories have emerged trying to explain what integrated care is and what the main building blocks for successful integration of services across sectors and professions may be. In this first webinar Dr Nick Goodwin gives a comprehensive overview of the most influential concepts, analyses the lessons learned so far and highlights the complexities of designing such systems on local, regional and national level. In doing so he also highlights the pitfalls which many integrated care initiatives encounter and illustrates with practical examples how integration of health and social services make it work.
