AbstractPURPOSE Effective integrated healthcare systems require capable, trained workforces with leadership, shared governance and co-ordination. This study aimed to provide additional understanding of roles and responsibilities in relation to integrated care from the perspective of massive open online course (MOOC) participants. METHODOLOGY MOOC discussion board posts were analysed using Framework analysis consisting of transcription, familiarisation, coding, developing an analytical framework and application of the framework. FINDINGS Boundaries and key issues surrounding roles and responsibilities were highlighted and participants suggested a number of enablers that could remove barriers, thereby enhancing integrated care. ORIGINALITY/VALUE Enablers included introduction of shared communication and IT systems to support continuity of care. Awareness and understanding of dementia was seen as crucial to promote person centred care and care planning. The roles of education in, and experience of, dementia care were highlighted. Barriers affecting the roles and responsibility professionals exercise include funding, role conflicts, time constraints and time-consuming paperwork.
