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.
Conversation 1. The transformational nature of creativity
PROP2 has been developed by IRISS and CRFR at the University of Edinburgh, and builds on learning from the previous Practitioner Research: Older People (PROP) project.
During 2014/15, IRISS has been working with a range of partners on a project focusing on homelessness in Scotland.
Fit for the Future is a joint IRISS and Scottish Care project that has been working to inspire better outcomes for older people in Scotland through working with providers from the independent sector.
The project worked with care homes, care at home providers and the people who access them in four areas: Falkirk, North Lanarkshire, Argyll and Bute and West Lothian. The aim was to imagine and test different approaches to the planning and delivery of care.
