Conference Sponsorship Opportunities
2023 Asia Pacific Conference on Integrated Care
Attendance sponsored by the Integrated Care Foundation
The Integrated Care Foundation are sponsoring consumers and carers to attend the third Asia Pacific Conference on Integrated Care (APIC). The conference will run from 13–15 November, at the Wesley Conference Centre in Sydney.
The 2023 APIC is open to anyone interested in improving health care and outcomes through Integrated Care.
The conference theme is ‘Building health care system sustainability and resilience’. The focus will be on using an equitable, system-wide approach to designing and delivering health and care services to achieve better outcomes for individual consumers and the wider population.
This conference will provide opportunities to connect with local and international practitioners, policy makers, and researchers working towards Integrated Care.
The program features a diverse line-up of local and international speakers, from health care, government, academia, non-government organisations, and beyond. They will share their expertise and experiences of integrated care in health care innovations, research, and policy, as well as practical examples of sustainable healthcare in action.
HCCA will also be featured in the presenter line-up: Shivana Chandra will be presenting her findings on ‘Consumer Perspectives of Integrated in the ACT and surrounding region’ at the conference.
You can read more about the event on the 3rd Asia Pacific Conference on Integrated Care event page.
