Programme Overview 2016

  • additional focus on homeless children and families, offering both academic and practical service-based perspectives
  • examples of the impact of truly person-centred, integrated service delivery
  • sessions on addressing challenging health issues - from psychoactive substances, to blood-borne viruses, to multi-morbidity
  • lessons from leading-edge approaches to involving and being influenced by Experts by Experience
  • transferable learning from exclusion health for the wider health and care system
  • practical approaches to increasing accessibility and relevance of services and reducing health inequalities

As well as the latest reports and lessons from Pathway teams and international insights

The content will update professionals on specific themes identified by Faculty members over the last year and explore the development of the UK “Inclusion Health” programme.

These include:

  • Faculty of Homeless and Inclusion Health: Pathway Programme
  • Inclusion Health: defining a new discipline
  • How can health and local government services identify the most vulnerable?
  • The balance between specialist and mainstream healthcare provision of the most excluded
  • Processes of exclusion – can health services reform?
  • How can we reduce premature mortality at the extremes?
  • Set the research agenda for homelessness and health
  • New health commissioning models for homeless and excluded groups
  • Defining education and training needs for clinicians who work with homeless and other severely excluded groups
  • Identifying new service models or health service responses that work
  • Considering homeless people’s health issues and those of other severely excluded groups in the wider context of health inequalities in British society

Professionals from health and care and people with personal experience of homelessness and service delivery will play a leading role in the programmes.

European speakers bring experience from other urban health and public systems and the lessons that can be learned.
