3. Course contents

The course starts with the review of the scientific literature on 'integrated care'. Students clarify the concept after reading two compulasary texts in a small individual paper. A larger group paper reports the literature review. This first exercise is focussing on the sources and the reference system. The same scheme is followed around a second theme (informal care); this time the literature review focusses on diversity in perspectives.
The assessment of both individual and group papers is a crucial aspect of the course. Each student gets the corrected individual paper and every group gets specific assesment sessions.
The course ends with a final individual exam paper were students are invited to work out a problem formulation dealing with the integration of informal carers in schemes of integrated care.
