The objective of the present study of healthcare professionals was to identify barriers to and facilitators of commitment to integrated care for seniors.

Multi-specialty community providers and primary and acute care systems

The primary and acute care systems (PACS) model and multi-specialty community provider (MCP) model are particularly focussed on building partnerships between GP, hospital, community and mental health care organisations to build a health care system to meet their local population’s health needs.

This Conference will take a detailed look at each of these models of care. One year on from the launch of the PACS and MCP vanguard sites, it will provide an opportunity to hear from the sites and others on how are they working in practice with lessons for areas of the United Kingdom that are interested in implementing similar models for their local populations.

Person-centered care - ready for prime time

Long-term diseases are today the leading cause of mortality worldwide and are estimated to be the leading cause of disability by 2020. Person-centered care (PCC) has been shown to advance concordance between care provider and patient on treatment plans, improve health outcomes and increase patient satisfaction. Yet, despite these and other documented benefits, there are a variety of significant challenges to putting PCC into clinical practice. Although care providers today broadly acknowledge PCC to be an important part of care, in our experience we must establish routines that initiate, integrate, and safeguard PCC in daily clinical practice to ensure that PCC is systematically and consistently practiced, i.e. not just when we feel we have time for it. In this paper, we propose a few simple routines to facilitate and safeguard the transition to PCC. We believe that if conscientiously and systematically applied, they will help to make PCC the ...

Improving the Delivery of Adult Diabetes Care Through Integration: Sharing Experience and Learning

In October 2014 the charity Diabetes UK published a report titled "Improving the Delivery of Adult Diabetes Care Through Integration: Sharing Experience and Learning".  The report identifies five key enablers for integrated care and outlines specific local initiatives in the UK which deliver integrated care for patients with diabetes. For example, the Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals NHS Trust (which delivers community and hospital services in Wolverhampton) along with the local Clinical Commissioning Group and various GP practices have been involved in an integrated and patient-centred model of diabetes care for many years. The model is characterised by partnerships between primary and specialist care that aim to increase the proportion of services delivered through primary care. All key enablers for integrated care that were identified by the report are present in Wolverhampton. Examples of these include:  1. Integrated IT. The CareCentric patient portal has allowed GP practices and the trust to integrate ...
