Webinar recording: Achieving integrated care: 15 best practice actions
This webinar looked at an accessible and practical resource that supports local systems in fulfilling their ambition of integration.
The 15 actions prioritised in the resource draw on evidence about what works from international research, emerging best practices and engagement with our own stakeholders and partners. The actions are deliberately aligned with national policy, legal frameworks and regulatory guidance, but most important, they allow for local variety in system design and service delivery to flourish.
Webinar organisers SCIE and the Local Government Association envisage a “whole system” approach in taking these actions forward, involving system leaders, health and social care commissioners and providers, front-line professionals, local communities and local people.
By applying these actions, local partners will be able to focus on three key elements:
- The delivery of person-centred coordinated care – ie, the core objective of integrated care
- The building of local “place-based” care and support systems
- System leadership for integration.
- Ewan King, Chief Operating Officer, Social Care Institute for Excellence
- Fiona Russell, Senior Adviser for the Care and Health Improvement Programme, Local Government Association
- Deborah Rozansky, Consultant in Health and Social Care.
