Integrated Primary Care

What does this SIG stand for?

The Integrated Primary Care SIG is open to all pharmacists interested in a collaborative approach to health care. 
‘Integrated care’ is a term that reflects a concern to improve patient experience and achieve greater efficiency and value from health
delivery systems. The aim is to address fragmentation in patient services, and enable better coordinated and more continuous care, frequently for an ageing population which has increasing incidence of chronic disease.
