2024 Annual International Conference

Empowering Care Excellence
7 & 8 June 2023
Said Business School, Oxford, UK

The ILC Annual International Conference is the signature event for the ILC and brings together our global community of fundamental care experts and champions from practice, research, education and policy.

The theme of the ILC 2024 Annual International Conference is Empowering Care Excellence: Embedding Fundamental Care in Practice, Education, Research & Policy. Care professionals are hungry for the opportunity to claim back their central role in delivering fundamental care. Nurses, allied health professionals, midwives and care workers are reclaiming the care agenda and their priority is to see fundamentals care coming back to being the priority in all care activity, with the person being cared for at the centre.


We invite all clinicians, researchers, educators, and policy makers to submit their abstracts for presentation at the conference. This is your chance to showcase your work embedding fundamental care into practice, education, research or policy. Share your insights, and contribute to the vibrant discussions that will take place during the conference.
