The conference focuses on the importance of community and home for joined-up care for patients. Where we live, the homes we live in and the stability of our housing situation can have a profound impact on our health. We will explore how integrated care can support keeping people independent and at home, and on supporting discharge from hospital.
The event will also look at the wider picture of housing and home life, and its effects on long term health needs such as fuel poverty, homelessness, poor quality and overcrowded housing. We will look at the role that local authorities, health and housing have to play to address some of these issues, showcasing digital solutions, transformational changes to service delivery, and emerging ideas.
