Event description


Impact: the 3rd Health and Social Care Integration Event on 20th May will feature both morning and afternoon workshops.

Please ensure that you have registered to attend the Annual Conference as a delegate before registering for a workshop place.

Please select which afternoon workshop you would like to attend by registering above. Workshops will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Outlines about each workshop can be found below:

1. Innovation zone- Values Based Reflective Practice (VBRP) - Virtual Experience

In a changing digital world we are always looking for new and effective ways of working. QUBE is a virtual immersive and innovative way of working. It uses digital to support how we work, providing tools and approaches for collaboration, working at speed, removal of hierarchies and removal of valueless tasks. Its use in health circles in Scotland has grown over the last few years, focused on project and programme delivery, innovation and leadership training, prototype development and bringing individuals from all different organisations together to tackle our health challenges

Using QUBE and Values Based Reflective Practice (VBRP) as a case study this session will explore new ways of working across teams in a digital environment.

2. Primary Care zone- Transforming Together

This workshop will compare and contrast experience of integrated care in Scotland, the Isle of Man, and in Sao Paulo, Brazil. It will describe how Scotland’s House of Care framework is being adapted to help strengthen the health and care system in three very different countries. The session will explore some implementation challenges and solutions that transcend cultures and identify opportunities for shared learning through the International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC) - a growing global community of people with lived experience, professionals, policy makers, academics and organisations implementing people-centred integrated care.

3. Relationship zone - The Importance of Networking and Relationships

An important part of networking is building relationships and trust. We will hear from Hilda Campbell of COPE Scotland and the ALLIANCE’s Integration Support Team on how their experiences of relationships and networking can support integration.

There will be an opportunity to explore and discuss building networks to support the third sector in health and social care integration.

Delegates will network with each other and discuss and reflect on the power of forming and maintaining, positive relationships.

4. Human Rights zone- The Future of Human Rights in Scotland

This workshop is an opportunity to be informed about recent key developments around human rights in Scotland and discuss their implications for health and social care. In particular, the workshop will look at recommendations from the First Minister’s Advisory Group on Human Rights Leadership about a new law to embed international human rights into Scots law. This new law could include a right to health for the first time, as well as other economic and social rights like the rights to housing, food and an adequate standard of living.

5. Resilience zone - Adverse Childhood Experiences and a multi-approach model

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), are stressful events occurring in childhood. At this workshop NHS Health Scotland will introduce the national public health perspective on ACEs, how social and economic inequalities can contribute to adversity, and specifically how this impacts health, wellbeing and safety across communities. Violence Reduction Unit will then explore how we build relationships within communities, our understanding of attachment to gangs and developing resilience in the face of toxic stress. There will be the opportunity for questions and discussion.

6. Communication zone - Communication For All

This engaging workshop will share the pathways towards inclusive communication against the backdrop of current legislation and approaches. We will explore what inclusive practice means within a Health and Social Care context and within wider society and develop insight into how we can use relevant tools to widen our understanding and expertise in this area.

7. Self Management zone - Self Management Fund Marketplace

The Self Management Fund will be open for applications. This workshop will provide more information to those who may be interested in applying and hear from projects that have been funded. The Marketplace session will showcase a range of self management activity and facilitate opportunities for future collaboration.

8. Future of Care zone - My Support My Choice: People’s Experiences of Self-directed Support

The ALLIANCE and Self-Directed Support Scotland wanted to know more about what that meant in practice, to help inform and improve the way SDS is currently delivered, so we worked together on a co-production research project: ‘My Support My Choice’. Using a national survey, focus groups, and face-to-face interviews we’ve heard from hundreds of people who use or have been assessed for SDS. In our workshop, participants will map out the stakeholders involved in SDS, discuss key case studies from our project, hear our peer researchers’ reflections on the process, and debate the implications and opportunities for the future.

9. Music and Arts zone - Little Art School Trust

The Little Art School Trust has grown from a firm belief that anyone - regardless of their age - can learn to paint and draw. The will deliver a structured drawing and painting class and showcase the type of work they deliver to people living with dementia. At the end of the session, delegates will have a mounted piece of their own art work. No experience of drawing or painting necessary as the lesson.

10. Active zone - The Place Standard – How good is your place?

Whether somewhere nurtures good health or contributes to poor health depends on how a variety of factors come together to affect the people and communities within it.

This walk-shop will introduce participants to the award winning Place Standard Tool, showing delegates how to use the tool to identify, prioritise and plan changes to local places. The walk-shop will help determine if the Place Standard Tool could be used by the participant in their local area.

11. A Conversation between TSIs – Future engagement with Integration

The session will consider how engagement with TSIs as part of health and social care integration can be improved at both strategic and IJB levels; within the context of the recently published Audit Scotland and Ministerial Strategy Group (MSG) reports. (TSIs only)
