We have two types of CIICA EVENTS: CIICA LIVE and CIICA CONVERSATIONS.
CIICA LIVE events have presentations from our global Community Members on a specific topic that has been suggested, and discussion is encouraged in the chat room. They last 90 minutes, are captioned and the presentations are available afterward for those who missed them or would like to share them.
CIICA CONVERSATIONS are for small groups to discuss a suggested topic for a short time: one hour. The conversations are facilitated by some of our Community Members, captioned and the summary of the issues which emerged are published on the website afterward.

Our Conversations have explored “reimagining rehab” and the value of person-centered care in CI services –
issues also raised when discussing the Living Guidelines project for adults. Where do we go from here? The lively wide ranging conversation discussed the challenging issues for both patients and clinicians - and parents.
The final Living Guidelines will be launched 14 July. This CIICA LIVE event gave a brief update on them and shared great ideas from advocacy groups and professionals from across the globe as to why they are important and how they will use them to change CI access and services.
