Spinning Plates: The Realities of Partnership Working

Thursday 2nd July - Friday 3rd July 2015 at Lutyens Crypt, Metropolitan Cathedral Liverpool

In a changing world of health and social care provision we are increasingly finding ourselves working with a number of partners. Whilst the benefits of partnership working are numerous it can also provide significant challenges.

The overall theme of this conference will be the exploration of partnership working. The conference will also feature updates from the FPOP Dementia workstream and FPOP Neurodegenerative Disorders workstream.

Conference themes will include equality and diversity, essential partnerships for leaders and managers, establishing clinical partnerships and working in partnerships with businesses.
