The NHS have worked with The King´s Fund to translate their themes into outcomes for patients and set out the most important priorities for action to achieve these outcomes. Under each of their five themes:
- Co-ordinated care
- Patients engaged decisions about their care
- Supported self-management
- Prevention, early diagnosis and intervention
- Emotional, psychological and practical support
they have described the outcomes that they most want to achieve for patients. In order to achieve these outcomes, they hace then selected the service improvements that, if met, will have a major impact on the quality and cost-effectiveness of care.
