Leaders in social care will gather in London today for a programme of inspirational talks, panel debates and knowledge sharing.
The Future of Care Conference, chaired by broadcaster and TV presenter Fiona Phillips (pictured), will bring together panellists and speakers from across the adult social care industry to discuss potential solutions to the industry’s biggest challenges.
Key speakers will include Professor Martin Green OBE, chief executive at Care England; Deborah Alsina MBE, chief executive at Independent Age; and Kate Terroni, chief inspector of Adult Social Care at Care Quality Commission.
New for 2020 are intimate fireside chats, with three successful leaders from the sector sharing highlights and challenges from their careers.
Robert D. Kilgour, executive chairman of Renaissance Care will share the lessons he has learned from 30 years in the industry, while Mike Parish, chair of Care UK, will explore the evolution of services in primary and secondary care.
Delegates will also hear panel debates and talks covering topics such as improving dementia care; the challenges of recruiting, training and retaining quality staff; and how technology can help care professionals deliver safer and better care.
Sustainability and collaboration will also be a hot topic for the day, as will fixing the continuing funding crisis.
The one-day event is taking place at the King’s Fund, London, and will close at 5.15pm.
