The integrated care event, Improving Co-ordination, Improving Lives, was held on 22 February 2018 at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.

This event brought together health and social care staff from across Scotland to share good practice and examples of integrated care co-ordination.

Delegates who attended:

  • celebrated the success local services have achieved by improving care co-ordination in their community
  • learnt practical approaches to improving care co-ordination, and
  • networked with delegates to learn from their experiences of an integrated approach to care coordination.

The event was hosted by Healthcare Improvement Scotland’s Improvement Hub (ihub). Work was showcased from Focus on Dementia, Living Well in Communities, Place, Home and Housing and the Primary Care Portfolio.
