Pathway is ready to accept submissions for the 11th International Conference of the Faculty for Homeless and Inclusion Health, due to take place in-person in London on 15 and 16 March 2023.
Colleagues are encouraged to submit proposals and ideas for 30-minute sessions to be presented at the 2023 Conference. The Conference will focus on Integration for Inclusion Health – reflecting the shifts in the health and social care system flowing from the creation of Integrated Care Systems in England’s NHS this year.
At Pathway, we’re particularly interested in the opportunities for improvement Integrated Care Systems may offer to help us address the challenges faced by inclusion health groups and those working in inclusion health. As ever, we welcome papers on all topics of relevance to inclusion health, reflecting latest thinking and practice. This year we particularly encourage submissions presenting new work on the following topics:
- Self-discharge and absconding from hospital – why does it happen, and what might be good practice for dealing with it?
- Ongoing support – maintaining recovery and providing stability in the community.
- The revolving door of A&E – what does a good response for people with multiple and complex needs look like?
- How can physical and mental health services work better together for people with multiple needs?
- Improving data gathering and sharing – tackling the invisibility of inclusion health groups in population health, and making specific groups and health needs more visible.
- Upstream prevention of homelessness – how can health and social care services prevent homelessness, and help to prevent its reoccurrence?
We encourage you to be creative with your submissions: as ever, we welcome strong, research/evidence-based papers, but also ideas for interactive workshops or sessions that test a training idea. We equally welcome qualitative and story-based presentations, insights from front-line services and from people with lived experience of homelessness or exclusion.
We’re happy for sessions/presentations to incorporate a range of media and formats. We want all delegates to feel free to communicate their experiences and ideas in a way that suits their interests, skills and passions.
