The conference – Future of Health – is taking place on 3 and 4 October and presents hospices and other providers an opportunity to showcase their expertise to decision makers from clinical commissioning groups, health and wellbeing boards, commissioning support units and local authorities.
The conference aims be the first step in creating an on-going dialogue and community for professionals to make joint progress for the benefit of the population and equip health and care professionals with the tools they need to make changes to the commissioning and provision of services.
The conference organisers are looking for poster presentation and speakers to demonstrate service improvements that have had a positive impact on the lives of people with long-term conditions. Presentations should fall into one of the following areas:
- patient-centred care
- systems and processes
- collaboration and integration
- innovation and research
- education and training.
Speaking slots will be 10 minutes, with speakers demonstrating the ‘why’, ‘how’, and ‘impact’ of their project. Each session will include a facilitator and panel of experts and patients who, along with the audience, will identify how learnings from the intervention can be applied in other geographies and/ or settings.
The deadline for poster presentations is 1 September, and the call for speakers closes on 2 September 2013. Further details are available on the conference website.
