The Centre for Healthcare Innovation Research (CHIR) and Dr Alexandra Ziemann invite you to attend the seminar that provides an introduction to the Proactive Care Frameworks.
You may attend this event in person or join us online via MS Teams.
Speaker: Dr Alexandra Ziemann
Around 15 million people in England have a long-term condition which (pre-COVID) accounted for around half of all GP appointments, 70% of inpatient bed days, and 70% of the total health and care spend in England.
COVID-19 has disrupted long-term condition care pathways risking exacerbation and increased demand for unscheduled or hospital care.
In response, UCLPartners have developed a series of frameworks to support primary care to deliver proactive care for long-term condition patients underpinned by the following key principles: risk stratification and prioritisation of patients to support treatment optimisation and help manage clinician workload; use of the wider workforce and digital resources to support a step change in self-management, remote care, and personalisation of care.
Since 2021, NHS England and NHS Improvement have supported a first wave of four national pilot sites across England to implement the frameworks, facilitated by Academic Health Science Networks.
The Centre for Healthcare Innovation Research (CHIR) at City, University of London has conducted a pragmatic, mixed-method evaluation of the pilot implementation of the frameworks across six sites in England.
The seminar will provide an introduction to the Proactive Care Frameworks and present the key findings from the evaluation in terms of impact on patient care and work processes, health inequalities, acceptability and feasibility for primary care workforce and patients, and the implementation process. The focus will be on deriving formative insights informing the national implementation of the frameworks going forward.
