By reviewing the IAPT manual and going ‘back to basics’, this Good Practice Forum will enable IAPT services to identify where they are delivering a good service and where the pressure to meet increased access impacts on staff wellbeing and retention. By tackling the strategic, planning and leadership requirements of an IAPT service, this unique forum will shine a light on the long-term sustainability of your service. When many IAPT services have drifted from the IAPT manual, this unique conference has been developed to focus on how to bring about change, achieve compliance and deliver a good service for both the patients and staff.
This one-day virtual forum will focus on developing your service through interactive discussions, practical advice and inspiring case studies that can immediately be implemented in your service:
- Reassessing the IAPT Manual: understanding what makes a good service and the implications for services that deliver outside of the IAPT manual
- Enabling good leadership: empowering your staff and ensuring compliance to improve staff wellbeing and retention
- Preventing vicarious trauma: identifying the best practice approach to the supervision of staff and limiting the amount of complex cases
- Predicting your staffing needs: building a strategy to meet the increase in access with the right staffing level
- Managing waiting times: discovering the transformative impact of a paperless service on waiting times
- Service user insight: a personal story of one person’s journey with an IAPT service
