Chronic Disease Management - Models of Integrated Care

Tracey Johnson

Inala Primary Care

Overview:

How can acute and primary care facilities integrate to ensure improved health at lower costs for their communities?  What is a virtual medical ward? What support is necessary to get multi-morbid, noncompliant and high risk patients to engage with their health?  How could we create more capacity in general practice through use of nurses?  What does a multi-disciplinary team look like and what support do they need?  Can health and social care ever become one force for good?

Come along to this session to discover how other countries are responding to the needs of patients with long-term conditions.  Data on costs and results achieved by a variety of models will be outlined as well as the challenges for Practice Managers overseeing this scale of activity and change.
