PIF co-founder, and non-executive Director, Mark Duman, has written a paper arguing for the need to recognise information as a therapy.
5.5 million people: information as a therapy, published by Captive Health, sets out a 5 point plan for healthcare providers focusing on ensuring high quality health information is integrated into healthcare delivery.
The paper positions good health information and the health care professional’s ability to support this as central to the two pillars of the House of Care.
It highlights evidence showing that information and support improve outcomes and patient experience, and argues that not providing such ‘therapy’ must be considered sub-standard care.
