Upcoming events: commissioning for outcomes

12 Aug, 2011 by Lisa Pattoni

IRISS is hosting two one-day workshops in partnership with Coalition of Care and Support Providers in Scotland (CCPS) to be delivered by the Institute for Public Care.

The language of outcomes, and approaches to measuring and evidencing them, are steadily being adopted and developed in care and support services. However most services are still commissioned and funded on the basis of units of cost and volume (for example, hourly rates). As such, it is a useful time to raise awareness of commissioning models that are aligned with that of an outcomes focused approach to service delivery.

These workshops will explore the key elements of commissioning for outcomes and will include sessions on:

  • Commissioning context and framework
  • Using evidence to deliver change in commissioning
  • Commissioning for outcomes
  • Case studies of outcome based contracting
  • Self-assessment exercise - where are you now?
  • Evaluating outcomes

The workshops will be interactive and will introduce participants to a range of tools and case studies.

The workshops will take place on:

  • 27th September Trades Hall, 85 Glassford Street, Glasgow G1 1UH
  • 28th September Norton Park Conference Centre, 53 Albion Road, Edinburgh, EH7 5QY

Both sessions will run from 10am – 3pm (registration from 9.30am).

Fifty spaces are available at the workshops and demand is likely to be high.

Places will be allocated as bookings are made and therefore early application is advised. The workshops are offered under the core programme of IRISS and therefore there is no charge. The workshops are for people who are part of the Scottish health and social care workforce.

Please note: anyone who books and fails either to attend or to cancel by September 9 will be charged £100 for their place.
