One day programme designed to help you:

Identify good practice, and the evidence base, for the health, economic and social benefits of the arts in healthcare
Engage and identify the leadership roles of key stakeholders in creating an environment in which the arts and health can prosper
Develop a sustainable arts programme within your organisation
Learn, from other PCTs, how to develop a fundraising programme that contributes to your arts strategy
Following on three years since the Department of Health published its report of the Review of Arts and Health Working Group and the great success of the 2009 event, this one-day conference will look at how much influence this report has had. Is the arts and health any more embedded or valued as an essential component of patient care and wellbeing within healthcare environments? Clinical data and real results will form a large part of this year’s agenda.

Highlights Include:

An interactive session on how to determine which art has a positive impact on patients
Mersey Care NHS Trust on how to include the arts and creative practitioners at the start of client discussions
Case studies on how to establish and maintain a hospital arts programme
Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital on how to launch a sustainable arts programme
Financial considerations and restrictions in the current climate
