Abstract

Introduction: Integrated health and social care is at present part of the health and social care delivery model in many countries, and developing in others. Therefore, health and social care inspectorates and regulators are facing a major challenge; not only should they look at the quality of individual health and social care services, but also at how these services work together to meet the needs of people using these services. Doing so, regulators and inspectorates can play a significant role in supporting the aim of adopting integrated care policy and practice, and of encouraging improvement in this area.

Policy context and objective: The aim of regulating and inspecting integrated care is relatively new. Currently, only in a few countries regulators/inspectorates are known to have ‘hands-on’ experience in regulating or inspecting integrated care. To enable knowledge development and shared learning on this approach, the Special Interest Group regulating and inspecting integrated care was born at ICIC18, creating a basis for collaboration. The scope of this new Special Interest Group (SIG) is on regulating/inspecting the integrated provision of health and social care.

At ICIC19 the SIG will provide a workshop for members and supporters of this SIG.

Target audience: The target audience for this workshop would be professionals working in or representing organisations that have a remit or operate as regulators, inspectors, auditors or quality assessors in the health, youth and social domain with an interest in regulating/inspecting integrated care.

Highlights: The object and details of this workshop will be specified at the first face-to-face meeting of the SIG in November 2018 in Edinburgh. A more detailed and outlined abstract will be drawn up and send afterwards.
