Managing Frailty The Fife Way

NHS Fife and the Fife Health and Social Care Partnership are hosting Managing Frailty the Fife Way (#fifefrailty), a learning event for managers and practitioners from acute, community and social care.  The event will allow NHS boards and health and social care partnerships to explore the health and social care system in NHS Fife and learn from examples of good practice and local innovation.

Healthcare Improvement Scotland is supporting the event and Graham Ellis (National Clinical Lead for Older People) will be introducing the day.

There will be four plenary sessions taking place in the morning by a variety of speakers including, Professor Scott McLean (Chief Operating Officer, NHS Fife Acute Services Division) and Seonaid McCallum (Associate Medical Director, Health and Social Care Partnership).

The afternoon session will be made up of four breakout sessions and a further plenary session with Professor Brendan McCormack (Head of Division of Nursing / Head of QMU Graduate School) before closing with a panel discussion.

What’s on the agenda?
