Organisers behind the Future of Care Conference have said their upcoming event will aim to find solutions to the sector’s biggest challenges, with leading speakers tackling topics from retaining staff to fixing the funding crisis.
The one-day conference, taking place at the King’s Fund London on March 3, will bring together panellists and speakers from across the adult social care industry to inform and inspire delegates.
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.
As previously announced, broadcaster, TV personality and journalist, Fiona Phillips will be chairing the event.
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.
Finally, Justin Hutchens, CEO of HC-One, will talk about how US care providers are using technology to ensure individuals receive the best 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.
