Integrated Health Care in China, Southeast and South Asia
Join colleagues, clinicians and researchers online for the 2023 Integrated Health Care Conference, a two-day event taking place April 4-5.
Integrated health care is a patient-centered, team-based, coordinated approach to treatment of medical, lifestyle, psychiatric and substance use disorders. The IHC approach developed in response to the global epidemic of non-communicable diseases that are largely caused by lifestyle health behaviors (e.g., diet, physical activity) and often made worse by co-morbid psychiatric and substance use disorders. The IHC approach is growing in the United States, but in Asia there are barriers to design implementation, such as culture, health care system, the workforce, and COVID-19 pandemic. This conference will address this gap by presenting approaches to address IHC in Asia from clinicians and researchers in China and Southeast and South Asia.
