THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
Please note the date of this seminar has changed.
This seminar will provide a timely opportunity to consider the policy priorities for improving care for older people and meeting the demands of an ageing population in England.
Attendees will discuss the impact of current measures, such as additional funding allocated to social care in the Spring Budget and the Government’s commitment to consult on the future of funding adult social care, the next steps in delivering quality, cost-effective services, and progress on Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships.
The agenda also looks at priorities for reducing delayed transfers of care from hospital - following the addition of a new condition to the Department of Health’s Integration and Better Care Fund Policy Framework, tackling the variability of services through measures such as the Getting it Right First Time programme, the wider implementation of the ‘Enhanced health in care homes’ vanguards - as well as wider efforts to improve the health of an ageing population through innovation and technology, public health and risk reduction, medical research and the integration of health and housing.
