Looking after people with multiple long-term conditions in primary care - what needs to change?
27 September 2022
Free webinar: Wednesday, 9 November 2022, 12-1pm, via Zoom
Centre for Academic Primary Care Lunch-time Webinar Series: Innovation and impact in primary care
Providing high quality healthcare for the one in four adults who live with multiple long-term conditions is a priority for primary healthcare services. People who live with multiple conditions want and need healthcare that is personalised, better coordinated, and treats them as a whole person, yet healthcare is often fragmented and organised around single conditions. Meanwhile, GP services are facing many challenges, and primary care is changing with the expansion and diversification of the primary healthcare workforce.
In this webinar, we will discuss how primary care can respond to the healthcare needs of people with multiple long-term conditions. We will describe how research is exploring approaches to providing personalised care and will hear from colleagues in Manchester where an incentive scheme to encourage better care for people with multiple long-term conditions has been implemented. Please join us to discuss this important topic and share your views in our panel discussion.
This webinar is open to anyone with an interest in the topics to be discussed and will be of particular interest to primary care commissioners, policy makers, clinicians and researchers.
