Working with others to develop and deliver integrated care
The government has made it clear that more effective and efficient integration of care must be at the heart of health and care systems in the future, and patients and service users have expressed a strong desire for a more seamless approach to their healthcare.
But when a wide range of different health, care and other community services are involved in the delivery of that care, how can you make this happen? After all, it is recognised that there is no ‘blueprint’ to effective integrated care, and that every locality, service and individual is unique.
This one day workshop will enable participants to understand how integrated services can be delivered and develop strategies to build joint accountability with others to integrate the services they provide, ultimately delivering more effective healthcare solutions that improve outcomes and realise cost and efficiency savings.
This workshop includes a small amount of pre-programme preparation.
Key aims and outcomes
- Describe the benefits and opportunities that integrated services provide
- Map the whole system of services available in context
- Identify the cost and efficiency saving opportunities inherent in integrated care
- Develop ways to overcome barriers to delivering effective integrated care
- Recognise a wide range of resources available to support the implementation of integrated services and how to make use of them
- Develop action plans to effectively integrate elements of their services to make a real and lasting difference
Who is this workshop for?
This workshop is aimed at anyone working within the health, care and wider community sectors who has a responsibility or interest in developing more collaborative and integrated approaches to delivering services and realising cost and efficiency opportunities.
