The activities of integrated care describe the interventions and practice-focused approaches that deliver person-centred coordinated care.
They range from proactive and preventive management of care needs to effective behaviours of multidisciplinary teams, joint care plans, community-based services and care support in crisis and during transitions.

Assessment and care planning
Multidisciplinary teams working with people who use services and their carers to produce joint needs assessments.
Community-based integrated services
Enabling people to receive care closer to home, with services focused on keeping them well.
Care and support in crisis
Providing timely access to advice and treatment to prevent an escalation of needs that require emergency care.
Transitions of care
Smooth transitions of care ensuring people receive the support they require in the right place and at the right time.
