Adult Social Care MRC Webinar Series Individual Webinars 2021 - 2022

Adult Social Care MRC Webinar Series Individual Webinars 2021 - 2022

Description

Introduction: Over the last year we have lived through an upheaval that has transformed our personal and professional lives. In April 2020 Making Research Count (MRC) took its programme online as the workforce worked and practiced remotely and largely from home. We were able to offer 149 events across adults and children’s services. MRC were struck by the appetite for debate, new knowledge, and reflection with over 10,000 practitioners attending our events. Our online format has enabled us to involve colleagues from an increasing range of agencies and our network has grown significantly. The future continues to look uncertain and for the foreseeable future we will continue our programme through webinars. We have learnt a lot over the last year and have developed and evolved both the format and delivery of our sessions, with sessions becoming increasingly interactive. We will be re-running some events which have proven popular and will evolve the content appropriate to the changing practice environment. Our supervision programme, for example, will be adjusted as to whether supervision is still taking place remotely or face to face. We will begin this program by revising what we have learnt in key areas of practice during the pandemic and presenting the increasing body of research that has emerged since the onset of the pandemic. We will also respond to major policy initiatives such as the Government’s review of children’s social care. We welcome feedback and suggestions from our partner agencies, including practitioners who might want a forum in which to present innovative and good practice.
