The Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) has developed a virtual planning tool to help organisations and multi-agency teams work together in a more integrated manner. The “Integration: step by step” online resource provokes fresh thinking with challenging discussion points, based on SCIE research into recognised barriers to integration. Helpful tips, useful reading, films clips and examples of best practice are supplied to support discussion. The main sections, based broadly on SCIE’s Research Briefing No.41 (2012), comprise:
- Overview the Integration Tool.
- Organisational Issues.
- Cultural and Professional Issues.
- Contextual Issues.
- Co-Production Issues.
- Next Steps.
This step-by-step tool offers teams and organisations a structure for examining current practice and planning future practice. Agreements, decisions and plans can be recorded for later use when developing processes, procedures and action plans.
