Welcome to HSCP Share, a new format for connecting Health and Social Care Professionals (HSCP) with one another, all 17,000 of you in the Health Services!
Set up by the HSE’s National HSCP Office, we hope this new format will add to our existing communications, helping to share information and learning from within and outside the HSCP community.
There are currently 26 Health and Social Care Professions spanning therapeutic, social care and diagnostic domains. HSCP work in all settings including acute, community, disability, specialist, mental health, older people, primary care and residential services.
HSCP Share has been in the planning for a little while and special thanks to the HSCP Communications Advisory Group and the eHealth HSCP Advisory Group for their invaluable assistance.
The process was somewhat accelerated earlier this year as we found ourselves in extraordinary times, dealing with the new reality of the COVID-19 pandemic. Very quickly, it became clear that now is the time for sharing and inspiration, while we deal with unprecedented challenges which require new thinking and approaches.
Our five main aims for this Blog are to:
Share knowledge and promote organisational learning
Hear points of view from HSCP and other HCPs in practice, academia and management
Assist in developing networks of practice
Raise visibility of HSCP service impacts and consider opportunities for further impact
Enable collective dialogue
You can follow the Blog by going to www.HSCPshare.com and adding your email address to the ‘Follow’ box. We’re also on twitter – @WeHSCPs. Please do follow, share and contribute – this is your opportunity to showcase your work, its impact and to learn from others.
