Manchester Institute for Collaborative Research on Ageing

Health at Home -The Right Prescription

Reducing delayed transfers of care and increasing independence at home for older people through integrated housing interventions

Tuesday 21 June 2016

Free Seminar for researchers, policy makers, planners, commissioners, providers & activists with an interest in ageing, health, social care, housing and integration.

The event considered policy, evidence and cutting edge practice in the fields of reducing delayed transfers of care and increasing independence at home for older people through integrated housing interventions.

The event was supported by the British Society of Gerontology (BSG) and the University of Manchester's Institute for Collaborative Research on Ageing (MICRA).

There is an expectation that integration & devolution will result in greater efficiency and cost benefits, with reducing the costs of acute health and care interventions particularly high on these agendas.

This event highlighted the links to housing and ageing, particularly to reducing delayed transfer of care from hospital, and considered the key role of evidence in the emerging policy and practice landscape.

The event provided an opportunity to build links between academics, policy makers, service planners, commissioners and providers.
