Sláintecare, with the International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC Ireland) and the Health Service Executive (HSE) has developed a series of learning webinars to share stories of how initiatives and services supported by the Sláintecare Integration Fund have contributed to delivery of care to help vulnerable people stay well in their communities. These learnings will be of particular relevance for services provided for those most at risk of developing Covid-19. Many of the Sláintecare integration-funded projects adapted to delivering their care in innovative ways as a result of infection-control measures, introduced to avoid social contact.
Webinars in 2021
Webinar 15: Patient impact of the Sláintecare Integration Fund
The 15th Sláintecare webinar focused on patient impact of the Sláintecare Integration Fund. These projects are testing new ways in which we can bring care closer to home, including putting the patient at the centre of service design and delivery. These projects show how joined-up thinking and working in partnership can help us reach Sláintecare’s goals of shifting care to the community, and improving experiences for patients.
Webinar 14: Enhancing capacity and skills for the management of chronic conditions
The fourteenth Sláintecare Right Care Right Place Right Time webinar took place on Thursday the 18th of November from 3.30pm to 5pm. The focus of this webinar was “Enhancing capacity and skills for the management of chronic conditions”. We spoke to projects who have been working with healthcare professionals to identify and treat certain chronic conditions through continued education, as well as identifying and developing improved pathways to provide more patient-centred integrated care. Other projects are equipping their patients with skills and information to better manage their conditions so they can stay well at home for longer.

Webinar 13: Citizen empowerment for optimising patient quality of life
Many Sláintecare Integration Fund projects have a focus on prevention and on empowering people and communities to be more engaged in their own health and wellbeing. The innovation and best practice that all these projects represent will be of great value to the work underway in every county to implement Healthy Ireland as a key part of the Sláintecare vision.
Engagement with and empowerment of citizens in defining and co-designing the kind of health service they envisage and need for the growing population is a cornerstone of the development of the health service.
Webinar 12: Frontline professionals delivering person-centred care
The 12th Sláintecare Right Care Right Place Right Time webinar took place on 23rd September. We put the spotlight on frontline professionals that have been delivering innovations in person-centred care through the Sláintecare Integration Fund. Working in multidisciplinary teams has been key to delivering the innovations needed to deliver the Sláintecare Innovation Fund objectives.
This webinar featured three Sláintecare Integration Fund projects, all highlighting how frontline professionals can deliver excellent person centred-care.
On 24th June 2021, Sláintecare hosted its 11th webinar ‘Enhanced Community Care’, which shared stories of projects that are delivering care in the community, at or near a person’s home where appropriate, ensuring maximum impact for citizens.
