Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation


Social prescribing is the practice of linking patients to social services and community-based programs (such as exercise classes, art appreciation and nature activities) to address the social determinants of ill health. With rising levels of chronic illness, social isolation, and mental illness, it is more important than ever that the health system adapts to find new ways to support patients and improve outcomes. Social prescribing is an innovative way that people can connect with their communities in a tailored and supported way.

This webinar will include presentations from James Sanderson (Director of Personalised Care at the NHS, England), Carolyn Dew (Head of the Cultural Pharmacy), Professor Mark Morgan (Professor of General Practice at Bond University and Chair, RACGP Expert Committee – Quality Care), Associate Professor Yvonne Zurynski (Associate Professor in Health System Sustainability, PCHSS and Australian Institute of Health Innovation, Macquarie University) and others working in this topical area, followed by a lively panel discussion.
