Abstract

Background:

The Children, Young People and Families Special Interest Group (CYF SIG) was launched at the IFIC International Conference on Integrated Care (ICIC18) in Utrecht in May 2018 as a response to the need to bring together health, education and social care researchers and professionals who are interested in aspects of integrated health and social care as it applies to children, young people and their families.

Since the launch, the CYF SIG membership base has grown to approximately 100 members from 19 countries and a cross-sectorial and interprofessional reach. There have now been face-to-face CYF SIG meetings at every IFIC conference since, and the establishment of conference abstract streams dedicated to integrated care for children, young people and families inclusive of and since IFIC ICIC19.
