The NHS Scotland Releasing Time to Care (RTC) Community of Practice (CoP) website is for all clinicians and colleagues from Health and Social Care settings around NHSScotland who are working with and realising the benefits of the RTC programme. This website offers us all the opportunity to network and share our success stories and challenges, and learn with and from others. Anyone with an interest in RTC in health and social care may join this network, which is intended to be a place where you can freely interact with the Scotland-wide RTC community
The LGA has partnered with NHS England, The Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS), The Association of Directors of Children's Services (ADCS), Monitor, NHS Confederation and the Department of Health (DH) to deliver a programme of work carried out by Integrating Care and PPL.
The toolkit enables Health and Wellbeing Boards and local partners to understand the evidence and impact of different integrated care models on service users, as well as the associated impact on activity and cost to different parts of the health and care system.
Website that offers information about the Social Care Research Ethics Committee (REC), types of studies it reviews, how to apply for research ethics review, and who to contact for further help.
The Social Care REC is a group of people appointed to review research proposals to assess formally if the research is ethical. This means the research must conform to recognised ethical standards which include respecting the dignity, rights, safety and wellbeing of the people who take part.
A programme run by the Scottish Universities Insight Institute (SUII).
The key objectives of this project are to:
The first in a series of four seminars. It introduced the concept of intersectionality and debates its meanings and purposes for understanding childhood identities and inequalities. It explored the different ways in which this framework can be put into practice by practitioners and policy makers. The seminar involved a combination of short presentations, group discussions and a plenary conversation and addressed the following questions:
An independent site where anyone can share their stories of adult social care or the NHS. The site covers adult social services (as well as NHS services) in England, giving service users, their families and carers the opportunity to publish their personal experiences, good or bad, of the care system.
An independent site about personal experiences of UK health services, good or bad. It is about honest and meaningful conversations between patients and health services.
Previously known as Patient Opinion
Evidence summary that explores what story and storytelling is, and whether autobiographical, first-person storytelling has a valuable impact on practice, and can engender positive meaningful change for individuals who access support.
It examines how storytelling has been used across social services to date, considers its value, and highlights some considerations for those creating and using stories. Case study evidence is provided to showcase the benefits of storytelling in practice.
