#EIFNatCon 2017: Putting evidence into action
EIF’s major national conference brings together people and voices from across the early intervention sector and all levels of government, commissioning and delivery for a day of learning and knowledge-sharing. High-profile keynote speakers will reflect on important changes and trends in the political and policy environment we all work in, while curated panel sessions will tackle a series of challenging questions around the theory, evidence and effective implementation of early intervention. Throughout the day there are opportunities to meet and exchange ideas and experiences with people like you who are passionate about early intervention and improving the lives of children and families across the country. Make new friends and allies, or catch up with old ones – this is the national flagship event for the whole early intervention community.
The agenda for #EIFNatCon 2017 is available now. Note that speakers and panelists are to be confirmed, and the agenda may change.
The panel discussions focus on four of today’s hot-button issues for the early intervention community:
- Can early intervention improve social mobility?
- Does evidence really matter?
- Is service integration the answer?
- Should the state get involved in parents’ relationships?
