Lecturers Elaine Gifford and Helen Rainey and the Dean, Karen Wilson attended the 16th International Conference on Integrated Care in Barcelona from 23rd – 25th May 2016

 Elaine and Helen presented an overview of the BA (Hons) Integrated Health and Social Care programme, both in a poster and presentation.

 The conference was very informative and highlighted the successes and challenges of integration worldwide. It provided the staff with the opportunity to meet with colleagues and to join in discussion from across the world, in particular Canada, Spain and Scotland. Since returning, Elaine and Helen have been contacted by colleagues within Health Improvement Scotland to explore opportunities for collaborative working.

 The conference was a great opportunity to meet people with practical experience as well as similar thinking educators from across the world to discuss contemporary issues related to health and social care integration.
