Social Return on Investment: Measuring The Impact of Public Health Interventions in South Yorkshire.
A *FREE* Knowledge Sharing Event hosted by the Health Inequalities Theme
Monday 16th December 2013
(event starts with a buffet lunch at 12.15pm)
13.00 - 16.15, Sheffield

Public health interventions seek to promote the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities in ways which are both effective and offer value for money. Public health professionals employ many creative strategies to raise awareness of the risk of disease and to build the capacity of communities so they will be more resilient and able to participate actively in negotiating solutions which meet their local and individual needs.

Social return on investment (SROI) provides a means of gaining a more detailed understanding of the social, economic, health and environmental outcomes of public health and other interventions. It allows the values of individuals, organisations and social (health) interventions to be included in the assessment of impact, converting them into monetary values. Using routinely collected data, SROI measures how much return on investment is achieved for each pound invested in social (health) interventions.

This workshop will provide an overview of the South Yorkshire Public Health SROI development programme and include information for commissioners. The event will showcase four distinct SROI projects undertaken within the Health Inequalities theme of the SY CLAHRC (Arts4Health; Cook & Eat; Introduction to Community Development and Health Evaluation; Moving On project).

The workshop will be of interest to Public Health practitioners, Funders, Commissioners, Providers, Third Sector organisations, Academics and CLAHRC SY partners.

Innovation in Commissioning 'Whole Systems Event'
Friday 20th September 2013
12:00 - 5.00pm, Sheffield

An event to mark the closure of the CLAHRC SY Theme; Innovations in Commissioning.
The theme has supported significant learning and development and evaluation since September 2009 during which time project leaders from commissioning and provider services have identified and managed improvements and service re-design. This event will profile the work of the projects that began in July 2012 onwards.

The Innovation in Commissioning Theme was re-launched in March 2012 and recruited 6 projects that sought to re-design services against the backdrop of a critical strategic priority for the commissioning organisation. In all cases the goal remained the improvement in the quality of services, more efficient use of resources, improvements in access to services, improvements in health, reduction in health inequalities, and financial balance. Working with 6 clinical/service managers and commissioner, the Innovation in Commissioning Theme has incorporated expert advice from the South Yorkshire CLAHRC in relation to health economics, knowledge translation and process and systems re-design using whole systems methodologies. The web site is populated with the work of managers in the theme; http://clahrc-sy.nihr.ac.uk/theme-commissioning-introduction.html

The event seeks to undertake a real-time evaluation of the theme, by way of identifying the critical challenges and opportunities for improvement and innovation in unscheduled care. We have been aware of several areas of specific needs for CCGs including the under developed network for user/ carer engagement and the need to identify a community to co-produce the improvement plans, recognising the patient journey and barriers to integrated planning across the system. We are also interested in considering the wider research agenda and patient recruitment in commissioning.

Please confirm your place to Rea.Smith@shu.ac.uk by Friday 6th September 2013 with your role, organisation and any dietary requirements.
