[RECORDED WEBINAR] Social Prescribing: Learnings from the UK

resource image

In November 2023, 4 members of the Healthy Aging Alberta team had the opportunity to join a learning trip facilitated by the Canadian Institute of Social Prescribing to the UK.

The purpose of the trip was to: build knowledge of the history and models of social prescribing in the UK​, learn about social prescribing practices in various settings​, gain insight into the barriers and facilitators of social prescribing implementation, research and scaling​, and deepen collaboration across Canadian provinces​.

HAA shared these learnings with individuals and organizations in Alberta that are currently facilitating social prescribing work in their community, or are interested in implementing social prescribing approaches in the future.
