Care England 2018 Conference & Exhibition

Description

The speakers this year will be looking closely at the use of technology in the care sector and the ways in which it can help to further enhance the quality of care

Professor Martin Green, Care England chief executive, says: 'The pressures on the social care system show no sign of abating and the challenge for care providers remains how to continue providing great support with finite resources. This means that services will need to be innovative and embrace new technology if they are to survive and prosper. 

'As well as streamlining admin systems and reducing the burdens on staff, modern software can also deliver the market intelligence and actionable data that lead to better, faster decision making. The speakers at this year's conference will draw on their expertise and experience to show how the introduction of today's technology can benefit the whole care sector.'

Our conference this year will be relevant to all parts of the sector, whether you support older people or those with learning disabilities, acquired brain injuries or other long term conditions.  It will also deliver practical advice for all levels of management, so please encourage as many members as possible from your team to attend. 

The day's programme will also feature an exhibition of products and services from leading sector organisations, plus a selection of informed seminars to help your care business respond to the challenges presented by today's business environment
