In 2021 Healthcare Improvement Scotland was commissioned by the Scottish Government and COSLA to deliver an improvement programme which engaged with people who use services and deliver services to improve access, reduce harm and achieve better outcomes for people affected by alcohol, drugs and homelessness.

The improvement programme worked in partnership with ADPs, homelessness services, third sector support providers, Scottish Drugs Forum and Homeless Network Scotland to understand the current delivery landscape alongside the experiences of people using services to consider how we might improve outcomes for people through:

  • Joining up services
  • Better access to services
  • Increased choice and control

This webinar will provide an opportunity to learn about what we did, what we found and the ways in which the learning from this programme can be taken forward to inform improvements in the design and delivery of future services.

The agenda is set to include:

  • Summary of key findings and areas for improvement
  • Experience of services involved in the programme and ideas for change
  • Perspective of family members and carers around involvement in treatment options
  • Connecting and understanding data – Linking homelessness and health usage data

Key speakers will include:

  • Lawrence Pavia, Senior Improvement Advisor Healthcare Improvement Scotland
  • Justina Murray, CEO Scottish Families Affected by Alcohol and Drugs
  • Martin McKenna, Public Health Scotland
