“On the eve of NICE’s new guidelines for depression, due in January 2018, our staff wellbeing surveys and national psychiatric morbidity surveys are showing us that a new solution to the rising burden of depression is needed urgently. We will be reliant upon psychological therapies staff to deliver the new NICE guidance, as well as their demanding IAPT access and waiting times targets in the 5 Year Forward View for mental health. But how many staff will be around for the duration? Can innovative digital ways of delivering therapy help to support hard-pressed IAPT therapists? If it is true that necessity is the mother of invention, we need to get inventive now” Jeremy Clarke, CBE, Chair New Savoy Conferences

This national summit led by Jeremy Clarke CBE, Chair of New Savoy Conferences, will focus on the development of digital technologies in IAPT following the government pledge to adopt digital enabled service delivery in mental health.

Topics will include:

  • Are digital pathways ready to implement new NICE depression guidance?
  • The Mayor’s Big Mental City Challenge: harnessing digital IAPT for good here in Manchester
  • NHS England’s plan to road-test digital therapies in IAPT: what does success look like?
  • Leveraging the benefits of digital by design
  • Emotional wellbeing begins in the North: the digital challenge to improve IAPT staff wellbeing
  • Disrupting IAPT, Changing the Game: players, managers and supporters discus

“Digitally enabled therapy is psychological therapy that is provided online or through mobile applications, with the support of a therapist. There is evidence to show that these therapies can achieve comparable outcomes to face-to-face therapy, when the same therapy content is delivered in an online format which allows much of the learning to be achieved through patient self-study, reinforced and supported by a suitably trained therapist, and also that many people prefer to access therapy in this way.” NHS England 2017

“We are working with NICE to seek high quality digitally enabled therapies for IAPT… This will help expand provision of psychological therapies, as well as improving access to digital services, both goals set out in the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health.“ NHS England, August 2017
