The Public Health and Adult Social Care Special Interest Group is co-chaired by Eugenia Cronin: firstname.lastname@example.org and Elaine Rashbrook: Elaine.Rashbrook@dhsc.gov.uk and reports to the Faculty's Health Services Committee.
The Public Health and Adult Social Care Special Interest Group was established to explore opportunities for improvement in population health and wellbeing through closer working with adult social care. The group will consider and develop:
- Approaches to prevention and early intervention in populations with poor wellbeing who may seek social care in the future
- Healthy ageing
- Ensuring prevention is central to health and social care integration efforts
- Practical public health tools which could be used in adult social care
- Understanding return on investment to social care from public health interventions
