On 1 December, DIPLOCAT and the Third Sector Platform of Catalonia will organize their third social Europe debate, with the title Integrated socio-health care, a European perspective.

The event will take place in Barcelona, at the Faculty of Social Education and Social Work of the Pere Tarrés Foundation (Ramon Llull University), ​​and will be moderated by journalist Eva Torrents. The secretary general of DIPLOCAT, Laura Foraster i Lloret, the General Director for Health Planning of the Government of Catalonia, Aina Plaza, the president of the Third Sector Platform of Catalonia, Francina Alsina, and the dean of the Faculty of Social Education and Social Work, Joan-Andreu Rocha Scarpetta, will welcome the participants. The opening speech by Susanna Ulinski, Policy Officer at the Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion of the European Commission, will deal with the new EU strategy on care, which aims to improve the situation of both the recipients of care and the people who attend them, whether in a professional environment or not.

A round table will follow presenting European experiences and good practices in the field of integrated socio-sanitary care with Anne Hendry, senior associate of the International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC) and director of IFIC Scotland; Joan Carles Contel, from the Directorate-General for Health Planning and Research at the Ministry of Health of the Catalan Government; Anna Vila, from the Directorate-General of Personal Autonomy and Disability at the Ministry of Social Rights of the Catalan Government; and Mirella Minkman, Chair of the Board of Directors at the National Center of Expertise in long term care Vilans (The Netherlands).

The integrated socio-sanitary care aims to guarantee quality care to people who are convalescing or have an advanced or terminal illness, or who suffer from neurological or chronic degenerative diseases that cause disability. With the implementation of this model, the goal is to find a better response to the needs of the most vulnerable groups in terms of health and well-being, with an adequate use of resources and good attention focused on the person.

The event will be in Catalan and English and there will be simultaneous translation. You must register in advance to attend the conference.
