ICIC22: International Conference on Integrated Care
23 May - 25 May
The 22nd International Conference on Integrated Care will take place in the Odeon in Odense, Denmark, from 23 – 25 May 2022. The conference is a partnership with Healthcare Denmark in cooperation with the Region of Southern Denmark, Odense University Hospital, Municipality of Odense, Campus Odense and Destination FYN. Denmark is among international frontrunners when it comes to integrated healthcare services.
The conference will operate as a hybrid event. It means that people who do not wish to travel can join and present at the conference via video link and present their paper digitally, however a delegate fee and registration will still be required. Please note that the organiser has special subsidised rates for LMI countries and students, and bursary places for patients, carers and community representatives.
Regarding the on-site situation and the pandemic, you can find out more about the precautions the organiser will be taking here.
Call for Papers Open Until 30 November!
The scientific committee for this conference has been established from international experts who are leading in the field of Integrated Care. They are accepting paper submissions on research, policy or education and specifically related to the Conference Themes and the 9 Pillars of Integrated Care until Tuesday, 30 November. The full abstract should be limited to 500 words. All accepted abstracts will be published in the International Journal of Integrated Care (Impact factor 5.120) and recordings of presentations and workshops and all digital posters will be connected to the Knowledge Tree.
Each abstract submitter is asked to choose one of the Conference Themes and which of the 9 pillars that their paper is most relevant to, understanding there will be overlap. This system will enable the programme committee and Special Interest Group leads to group papers together in a way that works best for delegates to navigate the programme and maximise the learning opportunities.
Special consideration is given to papers that can demonstrate active people involvement in either or all of design, implementation and evaluation.
New Submission Format
This year we are also introducing a new supplementary submission format specifically for Real-World Experiences or Case Studies. The traditional written abstract option will continue to be available, but now we will also offer the opportunity for individuals to submit a 5 minute video presentation in lieu of a paper submission. This format may be particularly appropriate to projects and programmes that are incorporating an integrated care approach to the design and delivery of their services. Case Studies for this purpose are identified as compelling stories about integrated care practice based on real-world experiences that will be instructive and of interest to other members of the community. The five minute video should describe your work and the impact it has had on users of the service, paying particular attention to how people and/or communities have been included in the design of the service. The successful ‘authors’ will be incorporated into the programme in the same way as written abstract submissions in the form of an Oral or Digital Poster presentation. The submissions will not be published in the International Journal of Integrated Care but will be included in The IFIC Knowledge Tree post conference.
