The ILC is committed to providing its members opportunities to engage in collegial discussion, learn from international experts, and forge new collaborations.

2023 ILC Annual International Conference
12 and 13 June 2023 (live in Portland, Maine, USA, and virtual)
The ILC Annual International Conference
Since 2008 the ILC has hosted an Annual International Conference, an event open to anyone interested in working towards improving the delivery of fundamental care. The conference is a way of engaging in a discussion about fundamentals of care and how we tackle some of the ‘wicked’ problems facing our health care systems globally.
The ILC Annual International Conference provides an ideal opportunity for networking, allowing members and local delegates to come together to share ideas and develop collaborative research and development projects. Facilitating discussion between local experts and international ILC delegates has always created rich and rewarding conversations.
Traditionally a face-to-face event, the ILC have evolved this event to a virtual stage in 2021, ensuring these vital collaborative conversations about fundamental care continue. In 2023 the ILC is combining a live and virtual event to enable us to meet in person and also access online.
