4th Transnational Conference on Integrated Community Care

Belgium, Spring 2021

We regret to announce that the 4th Transnational Conference ‘ICC 4 all. New Principles for Care’ which was due to take place on 17th-19th March 2020 in Brussels has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

We are all confronted with the urgencies of the Covid-19 crisis in our daily work. The Covid-19 pandemic is rapidly changing our ways or working together. There will be a before and after the corona crisis, not only for health and social care professionals, but for our whole society with an impact on the lives of every citizen and community across the world.

There is much we can learn from the many expressions of integrated community care (ICC) to cope with the corona crisis. We are eager to invest in a collective reflection on the numerous innovations and the hurdles that have been overcome to tackle the pandemic. More than ever ICC is on the agenda as a systemic approach that reinforces community strengths and emphasises prevention.

For this reason we have decided to postpone the 4th conference ‘ICC 4all’ to spring 2021.

The conference will benefit from a longer period of reflection on the lessons learnt from Covid-19. With your contribution, we will develop new content that takes into account the current challenges and opportunities to bring about the much needed change.

We are experiencing difficult physical distancing but also great social solidarity. We see creativity, courage and numerous community initiatives in response to the emergency.

We will stay in touch through the  e-newsletters. Feel free to subscribe through the form below. You can unsubscribe at any time.

The pandemic is posing global challenges and we want to take advantage of being part of the TransForm international community to learn from peers in Europe, Canada and in the world. If you have any suggestions or reflections to share on the Covid-19 crisis, if you want to write a blog post on how your practice, your research is creating opportunities for a healthcare that embraces integrated community care, don’t hesitate to contact Luisa Marino: luisa.marino@nef-europe.org.

We apologise for any inconvenience that this decision might have on your agenda and we hope to stay in touch with you and see you in Belgium in spring 2021.
