Transforming long-term care

In this session, you will learn about an innovative approach that enables people with lived experience to build their knowledge, skills and confidence to self-manage their own long-term health conditions and to use what they have learnt to benefit others. This approach also empowers people to become leaders in strategic coproduction, peer support and self-management education, effecting and embedding change within the health and care system at a national, regional and system level.

We will explore issues such as:

  • why strategic coproduction is important and how it can be embedded into day to day practice
  • how peer support can enhance the capacity and capability of roles within primary care, whilst helping to connect people with their local communities
  • how condition-specific self-management education can be delivered digitally and in person to meet the needs of a diverse population
  • how to engage, teach and retain a cohort of Peer Leaders to demonstrate leadership skills in strategic coproduction, peer support and / or self-management education.
