Resources: New SSSC resource pack to support Appreciative Inquiry

Written by The Editorial Team

The Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) have produced a new Appreciative Inquiry resource pack in partnership with NHS Education for Scotland (NES) as part of their work to support health and social care integration.

What is Appreciative Inquiry?

Appreciative Inquiry is an approach to creating and sustaining organisation change which focuses on what is working well and builds on this, instead of focusing on problems and issues.

The resource pack

The SSSC have developed the pack to support health and social care integration but it can be used by anyone who wants to use this type of approach to support service improvement or redesign.

It offers a programme and supporting materials for a cycle of Appreciative Inquiry over three sessions. You can use the whole resource to facilitate a cycle of Appreciative Inquiry or you can pick the materials to suit your learning, planning or service improvement activity.
