Turin, Italy, February 26-27, 2019

The conference “Towards people-driven care. Engaging and empowering individuals, carers and families through integrated community care” grounded evidence with real world examples of ‘promising practices’ that illustrate different strategies and approaches aiming to engage and empower citizens, carers and families in the management of their own health and welfare in the context of their community.

Specifically, the conference examined how micro level actors can be supported to actively participate, facilitate, and implement integrated community care through new relationships. It also explored the role that peers and volunteers can play in the empowerment process and the need for changing the education and training of the workforce in order to enable them to deliver integrated community care.

The agenda, input paper and power point presentations are available below.
