IPC webinar on market shaping: commissioning an ordinary life for people with a learning disability and/or autism who display behaviour that challenges
IPC Principal Consultant Sarah Broadhurst delivered a webinar on 22 May which considered how to commission to deliver an ordinary life for people with a learning disability and/or autism who display behaviour that challenges.
The webinar was aimed at commissioners with a focus on a whole system approach to shaping the market. It was delivered by the Institute of Public Care on behalf of the Local Government Association.
- Explored market shaping activities that take a whole system, lifespan approach to commissioning for people with a learning disability and/or autism, enabling them to live good lives in the community;
- Considered research undertaken by IPC on market shaping and the development of learning disability market position statements;
- Worked through some of the key challenges to shaping the market and identify solutions and approaches to overcoming these;
- Looked at the quality of the market and provision as part of the development of market position statements;
- Signposted participants to useful resources and tools on market shaping activity.
The online event attracted a good number of participants and there was the opportunity to consider a number of interesting questions. The webinar addressed a difficult area that many people are still trying to navigate.
IPC has been involved in supporting colleagues to develop market shaping for a number of years. You can find out more about this on our website.
