3rd Transnational Conference on Integrated Community Care

Vancouver, Canada, October 2-4, 2019

The third conference “Building stronger communities through integrated community care” took place in Canada and focused on how to engage and empower communities as pro-active co-producers of their health and how care systems can support an assets-based approach to community health development. Specifically, the conference examined how to enable the participation and engagement of communities in decision-making, including an examination of responding to different cultural contexts and the building of social capital.
