The Joint Improvement Team invite you to the next WebEx meeting of the Improvement Network, entitled ‘Releasing Time to Care and Integration’, on Thursday 7th March, presented by Douglas Hutchens, Fiona Cook and Julie Main with a guest speaker – Jacqueline Morton from Southern Health & Social Care Trust in Northern Island.
There will be two opportunities to take part in this: one at 10am and 1pm.
Releasing Time to Care (RTC) is a modular, evidence-based approach to improve the quality and effectiveness of service delivery. It supports frontline community teams to systematically engage and address productivity and quality challenges. It also focuses on areas for improvement where we can make the biggest difference, and provides tools and techniques to identify and eliminate waste from the way we work.
The purpose of the meeting is to provide an opportunity for colleagues across health and social care sectors to consider the use of RTC as a tool to aid the integration agenda. It will provide a brief history of RTC , the potential benefits of using RTC in practice, and offer some examples of where it is already working well. There will be opportunities to discuss the views of participants and consider what the next steps might be to progress this exciting agenda.
Each call will have a maximum of twenty places, so if you would like to attend, please email your name, email address and contact phone number, and which of the two meetings you’d like to participate in to: Andrew.McLeish@Scotland.gsi.gov.uk
