This event is aimed at those who will be key to delivering the substantial cultural and organisation changes need to deliver on dignity. 'Delivering dignity' was the final report of the Commission on Improving Dignity in Care in Hospitals and Residential Care. The independent commission was set up by the ‘Partnership on Dignity in Care', led by the LGA, Age UK and the NHS Confederation.
The partnership is now promoting the recommendations it has made to ensure care becomes person-centred and not task focused. Building on the engagement undertaken as part of the commission, the partnership will be inviting people from across the health and social care system to ‘roadtest' and sign up to a long-term action plan. This interactive event will share the recommendations and explore ways in which sustainable change can be achieved.
