Innovations in Health and Care: Spreading the Benefits (SCIE / King’s Fund / BBC News / OHE / Health Foundation)

Summary

The Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE)’s Future of Care Briefing Number 6, which tackles Innovative models of health, care and support for adults covers the spread of innovation from small-scale models of health, social care and support for adults. It discusses the potential benefits of scaling-up new models of care / relationship-based care which may exist locally, but which tend to be implemented inconsistently more widely. The main section headings (in no particular order) cover:

  1. Introduction.
  2. Key messages and recommendations.
  3. Imagining a transformed landscape.
  4. Real life stories from our research.
  5. Routes to scale.
  6. Embedding a local innovation.
  7. Whole-area innovation.
  8. Challenges and facilitators.
  9. New approaches for scaling innovations.
