Launch of Special Australasian Edition of Journal of Integrated Care

Dr Robin Miller from the Health Services Management Centre, University of Birmingham will be delivering a keynote address around international perspectives on integrated care to mark the formal launch of the Journal of Integrated Care’s special issue on Integrated Care in Australasia.

The formal launch is being held at Sydney Hospital, Sydney, Australia on Friday 24 February.

This will be followed by a presentation by Professor Joanne Travaglia on reflections of key learnings for Australasia.  Jo is Professor of Health Services Management, Faculty of Health at the University of Technology, Sydney, and an academic partner of University of Birmingham. Leading academics in the field will be in attendance.

Integration of Care is a major policy focus in Australia and New Zealand, and interest in this field is increasing rapidly as the Federal and State governments grapple with the delivery of care across services, sectors and geographies. Drawing together contributions from key academic and practice leaders in these systems will therefore provide a state of the art resource on integration of care in these contexts.

The special issue will be on free access from 24 February-24 March 2017.

The Journal of Integrated Care is the UK's leading journal focusing on integration of care and is based within the Health Services Management Centre, School of Social Policy, University of Birmingham.

The Journal of Integrated Care (JICA) facilitates the evidence-based integration of health, social care and other community services to the benefit of service users, patients and taxpayers.

JICA is vital reading for managers and practitioners responsible for commissioning, planning and providing care services, as well as academics studying or evaluating policy.

Dr Robin Miller is a Senior Fellow and Director of Evaluation at the Health Services Management Centre, a Senior Associate of the International Foundation for Integrated Care and a Co-Editor of the Journal of Integrated Care.

Editor-in-Chief Professor Jon Glasby, is Head of School of Social Policy, University of Birmingham home to Health Services Management Centre.
