We're delighted to announce that Jackie McKenzie has been appointed Director of IRISS.
The 2nd Annual UK Knowledge Mobilisation Forum is being held on 13th-14th April 2015 at the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh. It will provide a space for knowledge producers, knowledge brokers and knowledge users to come together to learn from each other, sharing good (and bad) practice about improving what they do and help maximise the impact of all types of knowledge in practice.
Pilotlight is a partner in an event - Capacity Building: The Art of the Possible - organised by Providers and Personalisation to share learning around self-directed support.
In 2012, the Scottish Government Self-directed Support team funded projects aimed at building provider capacity to deliver more personalised support. As this round of projects come to a close they are getting together to share what they have learned about what has worked (and what hasn’t.)
Since July 2013, IRISS's Innovation and Improvement team has been leading a project to design a care pathway to support the transition from hospital to home for older people.
IRISS, in partnership with Creative Scotland, is hosting four events as part of the Connecting the Conversation series. These conversations are designed to celebrate and connect the practice of artists and practitioners working together in participatory settings.
