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.
