This workshop on integrating health and social care, part of the Scottish Universities Insight Institute (SUII) Seminar Series, will take place at the University of Edinburgh Business School on 16 January 2018.
The integration of health and social care is a key policy and practice agenda in Scotland. Understandably much of the focus to date has been upon effective structural integration. However the role and contribution of service users in the process has been comparatively little examined. This workshop will explore what we can learn about this important element of service integration. It will draw on research from across Europe.
Speakers will include:
- Stephen P Osborne, Professor of Public Management and Director of the Centre for Service Excellence (CenSE)
- Tim Montgomery, Director of Operations, NHS Lothian Mental Health Services
- Greta Nasi, Professor of Public Management and Policy, Bocconi University
The workshop will include reflection from practice on the key lessons of the cutting edge research on this important topic. It will be of interest to all service professionals and policy makers engaged in the integration of health and social care professionals, as well as researchers working on supporting and evaluating this integration.
