Scottish Care Presents

Integrate, Innovate, Imitate

Tue 04 Sep 09:30 AM - 15:45 PM @ The Teacher Building


This event has ended.


The Partners for Integration and Improvement team are delighted to host an event which showcases how effective partnership working with the independent sector can foster innovation and good practice across the integrated health and social care setting. The Local Integration Leads are proud of their contribution to service development and improvement having facilitated better outcomes for those who access care and support, and better value for commissioners. The Three I’s is an opportunity to share impact through stories of success and top tips to achieving it.

The event will bring together independent sector providers of health and social care, those involved in commissioning services, senior managers, regulators, colleagues from statutory and third sectors, improvement experts and many others with an interest in service development and person-led care. As well as key speakers on setting the scene for improvement the event will include workshops, each of which will focus on 4 key themes:

  • Palliative care and end of life
  • Dementia
  • Care at the time of transition
  • Assessment and support planning

By attending the workshops, delegates will have the opportunity to hear from those directly involved in the development of innovative approaches to service delivery and new initiatives. This event is a must for those with an interest in innovation and improvement.
