Abstract

Background: We developed the Meta-framework of Person and People-centred Integrated Health Care (PPCIHC) using mixed qualitative research methods including expert critical review. Our aim was to explain the concepts and phenomenon of person-centred integrated health care.  The meta-framework provides a conceptualisation combining two segments. The nano to macro level and six dimensions of integrated health systems are fused with the key factors of person and population health determinants, experience and status, and the dimensions of negative or positive personal states with the care cycle. Further assessment of its validity and feasibility as a tool for policy makers, planners and practice is needed.

The workshop will involve a participatory evaluation of the Meta-framework PPCIHC using a nominal group technique. This type of evaluation is, in a sense a ‘diagnostic analysis’ on the feasibility of the Meta-framework of PPCIHC as a tool. The workshop will provide valuable information from potential international users and interested people to inform and refine the Meta-framework and resources.

The Meta-framework, the development method and the definitions of concepts will be presented to the group.  Questions and ideas on the Meta-framework as a tool will be discussed and clarified. All group members will be encouraged to contribute to the discussions using knowledge from their own experiences and the research. Following discussions, specific questions on the feasibility of the meta-frameworks will be posed to the individuals in the group. The questions will focus on the applicability and relevance, acceptability and practicality on the potential use of the framework as a tool for policy, practice and research.

Target participants:  The workshop is open to anyone interested in discussing the Meta-framework and the complex issues of person and people-centred integrated care. Participants may be from a policy, management, practice, research background or a consumer representative. Due to the nature of the workshop, there will be a maximum of 25 people attending.
