East Ayrshire has long been recognised as pioneering in their work to implement the self directed support policy agenda. Following our work with East Ayrshire HSCP’s Thinking Differently team, we are working on a project to support them to address data and practice gaps, particularly around recording outcomes. This is part of their need to refresh their approach, in light of many contextual challenges.
The project is being delivered in partnership with Dr Emma Miller, an associate researcher at the University of Strathclyde, co-author of Talking Points with Ailsa Cook, and an independent consultant specialising in supporting health and care organisations implement personal outcome approaches and SDS, linking practice and strategy.
Matter of Focus is leading on outcome mapping and OutNav. Emma Miller is supporting a cycle of practice improvement to address data and practice gaps, particularly around recording outcomes.
