Scottish Clinical Information in Practice,
SCIMP 2009 Conference at Dunblane Hydro 3 & 4 November 2009
making IT a success in primary care
This year’s conference will focus on the ways we can make technology actually deliver improvement in the services we provide all the way from the bedside to the boardroom.
Invited speakers will share, from varied perspectives and domains, their experience of the factors that can lead to success and the ways to avoid and manage the risks and pitfalls. A series of workshops will provide opportunities to hear about real services, standards, guidance and innovations of relevance to primary care and to discuss and question the issues these present with the people responsible for them.
Clinical Information Systems’ User Groups and suppliers will be able to provide demonstrations and workshops, giving delegates the opportunity to compare and contrast as well as perhaps picking up some hints and tips.
Our content is aimed at those in the front line of making information technology work in primary care – General
Practitioners, Practice Managers, Practice and Community Nurses and Midwives, Allied Health Professionals and NHS
administrators, educators, managers and strategists.
We have two competitions this year: The “SCIMP Poster Prize” and the “SCIMP Best Use of IT in Primary Care Award”. Both competitions are open to entrants from across Scotland. Posters will be displayed over the two days of the conference and the winner decided by votes from delegates.
The prestigious IT prize will be judged by a panel of experts and the winner afforded the opportunity to present on the winning submission at the conference.
We will provide opportunities for informal networking throughout the two days of the conference including a breakout
networking space; a pre dinner drinks reception and our lively annual Conference Dinner and Ceilidh.
Our conference is the most inclusive and comprehensive Clinical Informatics event in Scotland in 2009. Our success comes from the contributions and enthusiasm of our delegates, so we look forward to seeing you in Dunblane in November.
