Each IKAM staff member has authority to make decisions on the basis of the tasks he undertakes within the anthroposophic medical movement. Decisions taken jointly by IKAM on behalf of the whole movement only require additional ratification where there exist institutions and democratically elected organs of the anthroposophic medical movement in the relevant sphere of work. IKAM thus makes it possible to act swiftly and flexibly, to collaborate unbureaucratically and in direct response to actual needs, to develop initiatives and to exchange information and experiences in a reliable manner.
Alongside work-related daily correspondence, IKAM News also appears every two months and contains current news and information from the various domains of activity and initiatives. The main points are
also published in the Newsletter of the Medical Section at the Goetheanum, circulated to those working in the anthroposophic medical movement. This supports the development of a common awareness and thus of shared responsibility amongst the international medical community.
