THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This seminar will provide a timely opportunity to consider the policy priorities for improving care services for older people in England.


Attendees will discuss the impact of the social care precept reform - and the next steps for funding in meeting the pressures of an ageing population and sustainably delivering quality care services for older people. The agenda also looks at developments in integrating care services, such as additional funding of the Better Care Fund and wider implementation of the enhanced health in care homes vanguards, as well as the role of the third sector to deliver integrated care.


Further planned sessions focus on issues relating to regulating older people’s care, reducing delayed transfers of care and relieving ‘front door hospital pressures’, as well as latest thinking on personalisation, preventative strategies and self care for older people.
