Sustainable System-wide Commissioning - how a whole system approach leads to more sustainable healthcareNews Article Frances 07/05/2013 - 10:23am
A new guide to sustainable commissioning has been published by Forum for the Future, CSH, and the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement. The guide and associated tools are aimed at Clinical Commissioning Groups that want to deliver system-wide commissioning which will, as a consequence, lead to healthcare services that operate in a more sustainable way.
We are looking for inspiring examples of sustainable healthcare to showcase and discuss at CleanMed Europe 2013 conference 'Pathways to Sustainable Healthcare'.
Whether you are a researcher, practising healthcare professional or work in healthcare infrastructure please do submit your ideas to us in the form of a short written paragraph by April 30th 2013.
Healthcare without Harm Europe and CSH are pleased to invite you to the 4th CleanMed Europe conference on 17th 18th 19th September 2013 in Oxford where you can share problems and solutions with 450 others working on the interface between health and the environment.
This event built on a scoping review of research needs conducted by The King's Fund and funded by the National Institute for Health Research and SCIE. Senior people with backgrounds in funding, commissioning and co-ordinating research participated in a one-day summit to explore how we can deliver more sustainable, effective and affordable models of health and social care.
Delegates at the Green Nephrology Summit 2012, on 26th September, have issued a call to policy makers and healthcare commissioners to support them in bringing about the transformation to sustainable models of care.
Sharing challenges and solutions, I was one of 350 healthcare delegates from 34 countries and 5 continents who met at CleanMed 2012 to develop models for sustainable healthcare.
