Integrated Care Journal


Cutlers Hall

Church Street , Sheffield, S1 1HG

Sheffield, England, GB, S1 1HG

Integrated Care Journal welcomes you to attend our thought-provoking seminar in the heart of Sheffield to explore the challenges of long-term conditions, lifestyle diseases and the social determinants of health, from the perspective of the patient pathway.

Healthcare is becoming increasingly patient-centric as the national policy focus shifts to look at prevention and early intervention strategies. However, this has to be delivered for local populations in local areas.

Reforms are underway in England and health and care professionals need to know what’s working. Following the publication of the NHS Long Term Plan, the attention of health and care policy has shifted all the more substantially to focus on keeping people well, as opposed to simply treating the sick.

This is combined with new challenges, growing health inequalities, an ageing population which brings greater prevalence of multi-morbidity and long-term conditions, and more people suffering from lifestyle diseases.

The seminar will look at the patient pathway, how services cooperate and interlink to treat patients and what is being done to keep people healthy.

  • What are the biggest challenges to good population health today? Are the usual public health offenders still at large or are new issues on the horizon?
  • How can lifestyle changes reduce the burden on overstretched health and care services?
  • How can we improve leadership, relationships and workplace culture in health and care?
  • What does the future look like for prevention and addressing health inequalities in England?
  • What does primary care reform have to offer and how is integration helping to address the issue?
  • How is this all framed in terms of the Long Term Plan, system reform and integrated care?
  • Does this offer a light at the end of the tunnel for workforce woes?

In the fast-paced and ever-changing landscape nationally, it is more important than ever that these questions are addressed with local populations in mind.

We are pleased to announce our keynote speaker, Dr Charles Alessi, Chief Clinical Officer for HIMSS International. Further speakers, bringing a host of expertise from healthcare and the wider public sector, will be added over the coming months.
