The Health Foundation’s new and improved resource centre provides information and practical tools that can be adopted and adapted locally to enable services and health professionals to develop their own self management support programmes. It includes a host of new resources and builds on learning from the Health Foundation’s Co-creating Health programme and a wide range of national and international evidence. It’s a good starting point to learn more about what self management support is, how it can be implemented and the business case for commissioning.
This report from the Health Foundation brings together evidence and provides an up-to-date single reference point for the current state of knowledge about shared decision making. The evidence shows that shared decision making improves patient’s satisfaction, involvement in their care and knowledge of their condition. The review highlights the need for approaches that support patients to have the confidence, information and support to participate in decisions about their health and healthcare. The report also shows that policy statements alone will not put shared decision making into practice – active steps are needed to change the behaviour of both healthcare professionals and patients.
This report from the Health Foundation gives the findings from an independent evaluation of phase 1 of their Co-creating Health self-management support improvement programme.The first phase of Co-Creating Health began in 2007. It was a three year initiative in eight sites across the UK that aimed to demonstrate the impact, on clinicians and patients alike, of integrating self-management support into routine care for people with long-term conditions. The evaluation of the programme provides valuable insights into what worked and the further challenges health systems need to address to support people to develop confidence in managing their long-term conditions themselves.
