DIGITAL IAPT CONFERENCE 2017
Disrupting IAPT: Can Digital Pathways 'Change the Game'?
Wednesday 6th December 2017, Manchester Conference Centre
This national summit led by Jeremy Clarke CBE, Chair of New Savoy Conferences, will focus on the development of digital technologies in IAPT following the government pledge to adopt digital enabled service delivery in mental health.
“On the eve of NICE’s new guidelines for depression, due in January 2018, our staff wellbeing surveys and national psychiatric morbidity surveys are showing us that a new solution to the rising burden of depression is needed urgently. We will be reliant upon psychological therapies staff to deliver the new NICE guidance, as well as their demanding IAPT access and waiting times targets in the 5 Year Forward View for mental health. But how many staff will be around for the duration? Can innovative digital ways of delivering therapy help to support hard-pressed IAPT therapists? If it is true that necessity is the mother of invention, we need to get inventive now” Jeremy Clarke, CBE, Chair New Savoy Conferences.
