Abstract

Background: Early-career researchers, students, young professionals and/or people changing career often have limited networks, or awareness of job prospects in their field of choice. Integrated care as a career field can be tricky to navigate, due to the differing understanding of what integrated care means across organisations, locally, and all across the world, funding availability for integrated care, and prospective employer’s maturity and commitments towards working in the integrated care space, just to name a few reasons. It is difficult to plan your future career when you are not aware of the prospects.

Aims and Objectives: The main aims and objectives of this workshop are for participants to:

• Learn about different career choices within the integrated care field

• Discuss mentoring and its benefits

• Discover effective pathways towards working in integrated care

Format (timing, speakers, discussion, group work, etc): Each of the four  panel members will spend 10 minutes discussing their career pathways, delivered in a way that provides tips and lessons-learned along the way to ensure the presentations are practical and captivating for participants.

The final 20 minutes will be a question and answer session, fielded from audience members.

The discussant will facilitate the workshop and explore the following topics, as well as any additional questions from the participants:

• So, I have a PhD, now what?

• Where to find a mentor, and what to expect

• Researching in health when you’re not a health professional

The panel members will come from the following backgrounds, from around the world:

• Researcher

• Policy maker

• Practitioner / Program Manager / Implementor

• Clinician / Medical lead

Target audience: This workshop has been designed for early-career researchers, students, and young professionals working in the integrated care field to hear from a panel of experts working in the integrated care field.

Learnings/Take away: Participants should feel inspired about the prospects and opportunities that exist in the integrated care field, and also that they have more of an idea on how to create their own opportunities and advance themselves.
