How can health and social care be different?

Published on 23 Oct 2021

Are you interested in exploring how we can commission care and support in a way that enables people to thrive?

On 17 November (1-4.30pm), the Centre for Public Impact (CPI), Health Improvement Scotland and Iriss will host an event that will explore how we commission care differently.

There will be a a particular focus on the potential of applying Human Learning Systems – a new approach to doing public management. We’ll also introduce the idea of how we might use experiments within public management practice as the method for change. 

By attending the event, you’ll learn: 

  • What commissioning for outcomes really entails
  • Practical tips on how to start applying Human Learning Systems to your work
  • Examples of commissioning done differently at person, place and national levels 

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Olli-Pekka Heinonen, Director General, International Baccalaureate
  • Dr Toby Lowe, Visiting Professor at Centre for Public Impact
  • Manira Ahmed, Chief Officer, Public Health Scotland
  • Claire Sweeney, Director for Place and Wellbeing, Public Health Scotland 
  • Mark Smith, Director of Public Service Reform at Gateshead Council 

This is the first of two events that will look at how commissioning can be done differently. The second event on 9 December, will build on what we have learned and offer the chance to co-design Human Learning Systems experiments.
