The story so far – Insight Sessions & World Café
Scottish Care will be holding a Partners for Integration event on Thursday 5th September, 9:30am at Hanover Scotland, 95 McDonald Road, Edinburgh, EH7 4NS. The event is open to Scottish Care members and social care partners and is free of charge to attend.
This event consists of speakers from different organisations such as Edinburgh HSCP, Scottish Government, Scottish Care and Healthcare Improvement Scotland. There will also be a number of insight sessions which focuses on the work of Partners for Integration, including:
1. Improving care and support.
We will explore the quality of hospital discharge from the viewpoint of care services across Scotland. At a time when the number of agencies involved in discharge planning seems to be ever expanding there is a need for us all to work together and ensure that the discharge process is of the highest quality.
Covering issues of quality, process and communication the session will be based on experiences and examples of good practice. There will be opportunity for participants to come together to map out where change can be made nationally and locally.
2. Improvement through workforce development.
You will hear about 3 innovative projects that have had a role in developing the workforce using Improvement Methodology.
- Continence project – South and North Lanarkshire H&SC Partnership
- Care cooks course – working collaboratively across all sectors to create a practical solution to supporting people with dysphagia – Highland H&SC Partnership
- Pressure Ulcer Prevention awareness training programme across all care providers to reduce the incidence of pressure ulcers – Perth &Kinross H&SC Partnership
3. Engagement, representation, consultation, integration.
Independent Sector Leads (ISL’s) undertake a wide range of direct and indirect engagement within the Partnerships in which they work. In many areas the ISL holds a position on the Integration Joint Board and in all, undertakes considerable strategic planning and support of the Independent Sector. During this Insight Session several ISL’s from different Partnerships will draw upon their experiences and share the benefits, opportunities and successes that the role brings. It will give you an opportunity to experience the work taking place in your own and other Partnership areas and to take part in growing and strengthening this.
4.Using Data to Improve Information.
Good information is the cornerstone of good decision-making at every level. Our priorities are changing: but are we really creating better, more integrated care and support? The Accounts Commission (2014) stated that the length of time people live in good health has not increased in line with life expectancy, and that current arrangements for older people’s care are not sustainable. As demand for services increases so do the high-level aspirations for quality care.
In this session we will look at how we can use good information to improve care.
