Led by our CEO, Dr Nick Goodwin, and Senior Fellow, Margrieta Langins ISSIC19 offers an intensive one-week education and training course on the theory and practice of integrated care.
The Summer School is aimed at senior professionals, clinicians, researchers and managers working in the field of integrated care. Developed for those tasked with designing, implementing, leading and/or managing integrated care, the syllabus will include a site visit and presentations from IFIC’s Integrated Care Academy © faculty and a range of international guest speakers.
A key feature of ISSIC19 will be group work focusing on how to design, implement and evaluate integrated care across a range of case studies. This work seeks to enable participants to understand the range of issues and challenges faced when implementing integrated care effectively and support participants with key lessons and strategies to enable this in their own professional lives and local contexts.
ISSIC19 also offers the unique opportunity to foster international networking and knowledge exchange.
Full details of the programme will be announced soon.Book now to avoid disappointment

Over the past two years the number of papers published in IJIC from PhD students has risen steadily to the point where they now contribute to about one-third of all original articles. This is a cause for celebration regarding the quality of work being undertaken by young researchers internationally, but unfortunately it has posed a problem for the ability of the Journal to self-finance its open-access approach to publishing. Given that many PhD students today receive a budget for open-access publishing, IJIC must announce that from 1 January 2019 we will be requiring all articles first authored by PhD students, and submitted after that date, to pay a discounted author fee of £625 GBP plus VAT. If any PhD student does not have access to such a publication budget then, with an accompanying signed and stamped letter from their University, we will continue to publish articles from those PhD students at no cost. We thank all the PhD students who have published successfully their original articles in our Journal. We would also like to remind our PhD students that IFIC retains a policy to publish short thesis summaries for free within the Journal and that IFIC runs an Emerging Researchers in Integrated Care (ERIC) programme that is designed to support the next generation of students and young academics to shape the integrated health and care systems of tomorrow.

International Medical Corps’ Toolkit aims to support the understanding and implementation of integrated mental health programs in humanitarian settings. It includes key guidance and resources that reinforce the integration process among implementation partners, donors and governments. The toolkit outlines the steps for integrated mental health programs and provides valuable guidance for better resource allocation, program design, contextualization, implementation and evaluation. The Toolkit is the result of a two-year process of consultation, resource-mapping and development with a Toolkit Advisory Group. This Toolkit was made possible by the generous support of the U. S. Agency for International Development’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance.
