Discussing hospital discharge protocols for people experiencing homelessness
Unit researchers spoke to the London Network of Nurses and Midwives Homelessness Group
The HSCWRU Homelessness Research Programme team were at the LNNM Annual Conference, addressing this year’s theme Organisational Neglect - Where is the Line? The HSCWRU presentation focused on Discharge to the Street, informed by the current Out-of-Hospital Care Models (OOHCM) evaluation. LNNM, the London Network of Nurses and Midwives Homelessness Group, is a charity which supports the inclusion health workforce and promotes best practice. The conference brought together nurses, doctors, researchers, support workers, lived experienced peer advocates, specialist organisations and policy makers from across London working with inclusion health.
The next event in our Homelessness series, convened by Jess Harris within the HSCWRU Homelessness Research Programme, will examine drug and housing interventions for people experiencing homelessness.
