Moving forward with networks

Last week was I-networks summer conference, which focused on transforming health and World Museum and gardens Liverpool venue for the i-network conference May 2013care. The event was held in the World Museum in Liverpool. It was great being back in a city that has so many historic buildings.

The event was opened by the Chief Executive of Tameside Council, Steven Pleasant and was well attended by a range of strategic and operational officers across the public sector.

A number of presenters discussed the challenges around health, care and integration of services. The role information sharing played was also seen as key for earlier intervention and providing coordinated services.

The Improving Information Sharing and Management project had a table and as you can see we decorated it well with our latest newsletter and pop ups.

We had a lot of interest at the stand with a number of delegates having a go on the laptop and actually looking at the toolkit on the website. www.informationsharing.co.uk

The project has tapped into existing appropriate networks to support information sharing and management. This has without doubt significantly helped inform people about the project, and should significantly support the legacy of the project and overall appropriate information sharing.
