Reducing emergency hospital admissions – what is the role of social care? Strategic Briefing
This briefing explores how services can adopt strengths-based approaches when working with older people, to reduce the need for hospital admissions. It also builds an understanding of how preventable factors, such as loneliness, contribute to hospital admissions.
Case studies are used throughout, to demonstrate how local areas have used these approaches successfully in practice.
Aimed at: Senior managers, service leads and commissioners.
