General practitioners’ views on use of patient reported outcome measures in primary care: a cross-sectional survey and qualitative study

Patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) are increasingly used to assess impact of disease and treatment on quality of life and symptoms; however, their use in primary care is fragmented.

The aim of this study was to investigate how PROMs are currently being used in primary care, the barriers and facilitators of this use and if appropriate how it might be optimised.

Giving patients a voice: implementing patient and public involvement to strengthen research in sub-Saharan Africa

Patient and public involvement (PPI) is recognised as a valuable tool in improving the quality and relevance of research. Defined as "research being carried out "with" or "by" members of the public rather than "to", "about" or "for" them", PPI is a method of involving patients and the public in the design, conduct and dissemination of research and services that affect them, providing for a more democratic approach and patient empowerment.

The multispecialty community provider (MCP) emerging care model and contract framework

Across the country, NHS leaders have been developing sustainability and transformation plans (STPs) to implement the NHS Five Year Forward View. Nearly all of the STPs involve creating new models of accountable care provision.  Some are planning MCPs, others the bigger primary and acute care systems (PACS) model, under which all hospital services are also included under a single  form of integrated provision. The underlying logic of an MCP is that by focusing on prevention and redesigning care, it is possible to improve health and wellbeing, achieve better quality, reduce  avoidable hospital admissions and elective activity, and unlock more efficient ways of delivering care.

This document defines what being a multispecialty community provider (MCP) means by assembling features from the 14 MCP vanguards into a common framework.

Project INTEGRATE: Lessons for Policy, Management and Implementation of Integrated Care in Europe

Project INTEGRATE aims to gain valuable insights into the leadership, management and delivery of integrated care to support European care systems to respond to the challenges of ageing populations and the rise of people living with long-term chronic conditions.

This project has already examined four case studies of best practices of integrated care in Europe, in the areas of COPD, Mental Health, Geriatric Conditions and Diabetes, that have had a proven impact in terms of improving patient experiences, generating better care outcomes and providing cost-effectiveness. The key aim of this part of the research was to define what constitutes good quality integrated care provision, and how integrated care systems can most effectively be built. In Phase 2 of the research, the project considered the cross-cutting themes process design, service delivery, skill mix, patient involvement, financial flows, regulatory conditions, and enabling information technologies in order to create connectivity, alignment and collaboration ...

The University of Gothenburg Centre for Person-centred Care - GPCC

The University of Gothenburg Centre for Person-centred Care - GPCC is an interdisciplinary research centre, established in January 2010, with the support of the Swedish government's strategic investment in health and care research. The centre performs interventional and explorative studies on person-centred care in a wide variety of health care settings. This research 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, including improved self-efficacy and increased patient satisfaction, as care is adapted to each individual person and his or her resources are utilised. In addition the centre applies its findings to implementation, innovation and educational courses and workshops in academic and healthcare settings.

GPCC's vision: Sustainable health through sustainable care: To prevent and reduce suffering and strengthen the efficiency ...
