Invitation to the WSSPR Social Prescribing Evaluation Forum

Session 4 – Developing an All-Wales Social Prescribing Monitoring Framework 

At the Wales School for Social Prescribing Research we will be running three social prescribing evaluation forums per year. This event is the fourth in the series (Year 2) and the theme for the session is Developing an All-Wales Social Prescribing Monitoring Framework.  The aim of the forums is to provide a place for discussion and resources to support social prescribers and community groups in conducting evaluation and monitoring, this forum will specifically focus on using findings from a recent study to develop an All-Wales Social Prescribing Monitoring Framework which is useful in practice, fit-for-purpose and acceptable.

We are inviting members of the Wales Social Prescribing Research Network and the three Welsh Communities of Practice to participate, initially spaces will be limited to 25 people per session and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. We would suggest that 1-2 people per organisation sign up to each session. There will be a waiting list in the event that the forum is oversubscribed.

We will host these forums on Microsoft Teams and joining instructions will be sent to attendees prior to each event.

The dates for upcoming meetings are:

  • 21st July 2021, 9:30-11:30am
  • 9th November 2021, 9:30-11:30am
  • 2nd March 2022, 9:30-11:30am
