Consumer & Carer Inclusion Webinar Series
For Staff, Practitioners, Hospitals & Mental Health Organisations
This free webinar series has been created to support staff, practitioners and hospitals to understand the benefits of, and develop strong consumer and carer inclusion, according to Standard 2. They are also offer great tips for other mental health organisations on how to engage with consumers and carers in service development, delivery and evaluation.
Patient-centred care is recognised as an element of high quality healthcare in its own right, and there is strong evidence that it can lead to improvements in health care quality and outcomes by increasing safety, cost effectiveness and patient, family and staff satisfaction. Studies have demonstrated significant benefits from such partnerships in clinical quality and outcomes, the experience of care, and the business and operations of delivering care.
Operational benefits include lower costs per case, improved liability claims experiences and increased staff satisfaction and retention rates. The importance of health services partnering with patients, families, carers and consumers is recognised at a national and international level.
If you are looking to contribute to improvements to mental health services, this course will cover these 5 key topics:
Taking inspiration from Standard 2
Insights into accreditation
CEO Perspectives on consumer & carer inclusion
Consumers, carers, and committees
Maximising consumer & carer engagement
These webinars are offered monthly between February and June 2021. You can sign up for one, a few or all of them. Don't worry, if you miss one, or the time doesn't suit, there will be a recording available after the session.
