THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar is bringing together policymakers and key stakeholders to discuss priorities for older people’s care in Wales.
It will be an opportunity to discuss the implementation of the recently released Dementia Action Plan - looking at the challenges for meeting the needs of patients and supporting the wider circle of service users, including carers and NHS staff, as well as raising public dementia awareness.
The seminar also follows the Parliamentary Review of Health and Social Care, which focused on issues arising from changing demographics, and the Welsh Government’s recent response, which includes a new joined-up plan for Health and Social care. Delegates will consider the prioritisation of integration, and the resources for, and the development of, new models of care for older people.
Further sessions will focus on the opportunities for improving the regulation and governance of older people’s care - in response to varying standards - as well as the future role of bodies including health boards, local authorities and private care organisations in the effective delivery of services.
Attendees will also discuss priorities for enhancing standards in care homes, following the recent report from the Older People’s Commissioner for Wales, which calls for further action to be taken by the Welsh Government.
