On Tuesday 3 November the School of Social Sciences was delighted to welcome Professor David Croisdale-Appleby to NTU for his guest lecture on "The Future of Integrated Care: Realising the value for healthcare, social care and social work in contemporary society."

Professor Croisdale-Appleby is deeply involved in health and social care policy, with a particular interest in the role of social work in making the integration of healthcare and social care a reality. He holds many national and international roles, and has chaired international conferences on social care.

In his guest lecture, Professor David Croisdale-Appleby set out his view of the numerous political drivers influencing policy in relation to the integrated care agenda. In doing so, David drew on his involvement in informing and influencing policy and the initiatives in which he has occupied leadership positions.

The lecture considered how innovations such as those contributed by David, including his work in dementia care, support for those with learning disabilities, general practice, hospital discharge and social work education, can serve the health and social care profession itself. He went on to suggest how we can address the challenges of commissioning and providing integrated care in the future.

Di Bailey, Head of the Division of Social Work and Health said: "This was a really interesting and thought provoking lecture, which will inform the way we design our health and social care curricula moving forward."

"The opportunity to think about integrated care as rather like Alice in Wonderland's garden was a novel approach, which made the challenges associated with integration seem achievable. Also of note was the international perspective David brought to the topic. This was really illuminating as there is much we can learn from our global community."
