Living it Up

Living it Up describes itself as an online self-management hub, which aims to empower people to improve their health and wellbeing. Aimed at the over 50s, the resource is packed full of ideas and activities and is useful for those with long-term health conditions, those who provide care and anyone who wants to improve their health, wellbeing and quality of life. It is driven by a collaborative community approach.

Hospital to Home gets animated

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.

The first stage of this project (July 2013-April 2014) involved gathering reflections from practitioners based nationally in Scotland on what the pathway looks like for them and the associated problems. This information was collated into a visual pathway map.
