Following on from our highly successful ICCH ONLINE conference in September 2020, the second part of this event, was also held online from the 15 – 16 April 2021.
We had hoped to be able to hold this event in person in Leuven, Belgium, but with the continued uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic we felt it would be not be responsible nor sensible for us to pursue this plan.
This online conference was an opportunity for you to take part in the second part of our 2020 ICCH programme. It brought together the community of healthcare researchers, teachers, practitioners and policy makers from around the globe. It provided us with a unique opportunity for the international and interactive exchange of ideas and products of education, research and policy activities across individuals and institutions.

Professor Lidia Del Piccolo
Associate Professor in Clinical Psychology at Verona University, Italy
