Calling integrated care and support pioneers: join NHSIQ's Google Hangout and tweetchat

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: Events, Integration

This Wednesday, 21 May at 7.30pm, NHS Improving Quality (NHSIQ), in association with the Innovation Unit, invites you to join a simultaneous Google Hangout and tweetchat, chaired by @helenbevan, in which anyone can take part.

Are you interested in integrated care, what it means to you and the people who use your services? Are you wondering how to get things done?

Although this discussion is primarily aimed at commissioners, NHSIQ are keen to involve providers, service users and carers in the debate. So whatever your interest and specialism - please join in!

NHS-Improving-Quality-logoTweet your questions to @careto_share in advance and use the hashtag #integrationpioneers to get involved and interact with people at the leading edge of integrated care - from pioneer and non-pioneer sites alike.

Whether you're a seasoned digital pro or new to the ever evolving world of social media, you may have some questions before you sign up, such as...

Why take part this Wednesday?

  • Share and learn what’s happening in integrated care
  • Make contacts with people across the country facing similar challenges
  • Develop networks with like-minded people
  • Challenge the status quo through “the art of the possible"

As part of the hangout you will hear from the pioneer teams in Kent and Southend. The teams will be talking, in part, about their experiences developing joined up health and care, as well as asking their own questions and posing challenges to the sector.

Hangouts are video conferences involving up to 10 people. You can watch them live on YouTube or visit anytime afterwards to watch saved sessions.

On Wednesday night, the live video will feature a Q&A allowing you to submit questions to the people making presentations and leading the discussion as it happens.

The tweetchat will be happening simultaneously at #integrationpioneers, featuring a live twitter commentary summarising the hangout, twitter discussion and debate.
