Long-term condition care @home: supporting restoration and recovery of services
The pandemic has placed unprecedented pressure on the health system and has resulted in disruption to routine care for people with long-term conditions. Emerging evidence shows there has been a considerable impact on the management of long term conditions and health outcomes, which in turn puts additional pressure on the NHS.
A whole-system approach is needed to support the recovery of routine care and to enable primary care to identify, prioritise and focus resources on optimising care for people most at risk. This will require use of the wider workforce to deliver high quality care, a personalised, holistic approach and support for people to self-manage their long term conditions in their own homes, including through use of remote monitoring and digital tools
In this session you will hear about:
- The impact of the pandemic on long term condition management and nationally recommended actions.
- How an NHS @home approach can help ICSs and primary care restore and transform long term condition management through a practical framework and support package which includes search tools, pathways for remote care, support for virtual consultations and scripts, protocols and training for staff.
- How this framework and support is being used across a number of systems and the benefits and impact of the approach.
