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.

Voices on person-centred care

What is person-centred care to a patient, a physician, a nurse, a hospital head of department, an industry representative and a researcher? How do these people, who all have experience of receiving or working with person-centred care, see person-centred care from their perspectives? Short film clips from the University of Gothenburg Centre for Person-centred Care - GPCC. GPCC is an in terdisciplinary research centre, established in January 2010, with the support of the Swedish government's strategic investment in health and care research. Uniquely GPCC has evaluated the effects of person-centred care in controlled studies. This has established that person-centred care is capable of enhancing the efficiency of the care process. Apart from considerable monetary savings resulting from amongst other things shorter hospital stays, significant positive effects from a patient perspective have been seen, as care is adapted to each individual person and his or her resources are made use of.

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.

An Evaluation of the Role of an Intermediate Care Facility in the Continuum of Care in Western Cape, South Africa

A comprehensive primary healthcare (PHC) approach requires clear referral and continuity of care pathways. South Africa is a lower- middle income country (LMIC) that lacks data on the role of intermediate care (IC) services in the health system. This study described the model of service provision at one facility in Cape Town, including reason for admission, the mix of services and skills provided and needed, patient satisfaction, patient outcome and articulation with other services across the spectrum of care.

ValueCare: Cork/Kerry Pilot Site

 
In Ireland, the ValueCare project focuses on co-designing a digital solution to help older people (≥75) experiencing mild to moderate frailty to live independently in their homes. The technology will foster regular communication between older people in the relevant organisations (primary, secondary and social care) with technology enabled data sharing & common data sets can improve flow and information exchange. Older people will access the VALUECARE integrated care pathway via referral from primary care, the emergency department, the acute medical unit or the public health nurse. The care coordinator will develop the following 4 components; case finding; needs assessment; care planning and care co-ordination.
