The Living Well in Communities team are delighted to announce the first of three interactive workshops, where delegates will learn about the emerging examples of good practice and will help influence the future development of Anticipatory Care Planning (ACP) across Scotland. The programme includes a focus on whole-system pathways, effective use of technology and information sharing, improving the interfaces between services and person-centred care and carers support.

During the event, delegates will be asked to agree a ‘commitment’ to ACP. At future workshops, delegates will have the opportunity to discuss the progress of their commitment and how this has benefitted their partnership, NHS board or organisation.

ACP has been identified nationally as a priority to support delivery of the 2020 vision and the Health and Wellbeing Outcomes linked with the Health and Social Care Integration agenda as highlighted in the recent Audit Scotland report on Integration.

Effective ACP is also recognised as a cornerstone of good practice in recent service reviews including the Palliative Care Strategic Framework, the Ritchie Report for Out of Hours and Unscheduled Care and the 2016/17 GMS Contract. Nationally, ACP is being co-ordinated as a key workstream within the Living Well in Communities (LWIC) initiative which is focussed on building preventative and community focussed models of care.

Delegates include colleagues from Healthcare Improvement Scotland, NHS boards, health and social care partnerships, Scottish Government, third sector organisations and voluntary organisations along with anticipatory care specialists, palliative care specialists and representatives from hospices and charitable organisations.
