Embedding recovery principles into secure services: Progress and challengesThursday 8 July 2010

8.30am to 4.30pm

Easthampstead Park Conference Centre, Wokingham, Berkshire

The challenge for everyone using and providing secure mental health services is to find effective and meaningful ways of embedding recovery into care pathways.

The second bi-annual Recovery in Secure Services Conference, hosted by Broadmoor Hospital, will explore the following themes: Embedding the recovery approach into learning and development.

How do secure services ensure all staff have an understanding of recovery approaches and incorporate these into routine clinical practice.

Recovery outcome evaluation
How do secure services measure recovery practice and outcomes? How are results used to enhance the patient experience?

Social inclusion
How do services demonstrate socially inclusive practice and opportunities within the secure care pathway?

Staff and service performance
In what ways can secure services demonstrate that the principles underpinning a recovery approach are embedded in service design and development and within staff development arrangements?

Keynote speakers:
Marion Janner – Director, Bright Organisation / Star Wards
Graeme Smith – Film Director/Producer, Mindzmatter Films and Media
Rachel Perkins – Director of Quality Assurance and User Experience, South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust
Laurie Davidson – Recovery Devon

The conference is aimed at current or ex-service users and multidisciplinary colleagues from high and medium secure services within London and the south of England.
