Managing LTCs – new resources
Published: 13 December, 2015
Two new publications from the Health Foundation have been added to their Person Centred Care Resource Centre which brings together key resources to help healthcare professionals support people to more effectively manage and make informed decisions about their own health and care.
A practical guide to self-management support: Key components for successful implementation explains what self-management support is and why it is important. It then looks at various aspects of putting it into practice, including planning and commissioning, building knowledge, skills and confidence, and measurement and evaluation.
Building the House of Care explores how the House of Care, a coordinated approach to personalised care and support planning, can transform the health and care of people with long-term conditions. It contains case studies of evolving practice in Leeds and Somerset and seeks to understand how two whole health economies – individuals, communities, health and social care services and others – are working to manage the rise in the number of people with multiple LTCs and enhance their care experiences.
