She has strong links within Scotland and across the world in the area of integrated care, long-term conditions, intermediate care, telehealth & telecare, quality and care of older people. She is also a Senior Fellow at the International Foundation for Integrated Care, which is a not-for-profit educational membership-based network that crosses organisational and professional boundaries to bring people together to advance the science, knowledge and adoption of integrated care policy and practice. See http://integratedcarefoundation.org/ for further details.
The Foundation seeks to achieve this through the development and exchange of ideas among academics, researchers, managers, clinicians, policy makers and users and carers of services throughout the World. The Foundation’s goal is to provide a unique forum to bring these various perspectives together with the ultimate aim of improving the experience of care for patients, their families and communities, while improving the overall effectiveness of the health and care system. Professor Hendry is a welcome addition to the School who have ambitions to be seen as leaders in the field of integrated care. Delighted that you have join us!
