Published on

AHPs are uniquely placed in delivering outcomes for integration as they already work across health, social care and the third sector. This workshop will highlight some innovative examples of partnership working, pose questions and initiate debate. Key themes explored will include how putting the person at the centre can improve the individuals care and experience and how self-management and enablement can empower individuals, families and carers.
