Tuesday 23rd May 2017 (York)

What is this?

This free workshop is the third in a series of Transforming Care Masterclasses that will be organised for 2017. Each one will give you an opportunity to develop practical knowledge around a different theme.

Each Masterclass is designed to support staff develop the skills to help deliver the Transforming Care agenda and the vision contained within ‘Building the Right Support’.

  •  Contribute to your core skills training.

Key topics for this Masterclass will include:

  •  Overview of the national service models and guidance for Building the Right Support and how is can be implemented.
  •  Examples of bespoke service specification designing in practice from hospitals and community services who have trialled new models.
  •  Here about people stories who have succeeded in the community, living in new models of support.

The sessions will be led by experienced practitioners such as: Gavin Harding, NHS England Liz Zijlstra and Helen Van Ristell from Community Transitions Tracy Ayoung Chee from Secure CAMHS service Dimensions and Waymarks community providers who will share their own knowledge and support you to further develop your own good practice.

Who should attend?
