Get well, Stay well is for people living with long term health conditions and is a set of simple activities designed to support people to make changes in managing their day to day health.
Get Well, Stay Well introduces you to some new ideas and helps you to practice some new skills to help manage your long-term health condition, whatever it is. Other people like you who have done this have:
- gained self confidence
- become more active
- returned to work
- got better care
- felt more positive about the future
- felt less stress
We want to help you manage things to improve your daily life. Get Well, Stay Well is not about medical information. It’s about dealing with day-to-day problems caused by poor health.
Coffee Break training-Core skills in person centred care is aimed at health and care staff who want to begin to explore using person centered tools and skills in their daily practice.
This is designed to be accessed in short 5 minute chunks- its not designed to make you an expert – but to understand the tools and skills and hopefully encourage you to find out more
About our courses
Both our courses and supporting material are based on The Co-creating Health programme aimed to embed self-management support within mainstream health services across the UK and equip individuals and clinicians to work in partnership to achieve better outcomes.
The programme focused on three equally important factors which determine how much individuals are able to play an active role in managing their own health:
- Giving people with long-term conditions the skills, confidence and support to self manage.
- Helping clinicians to develop the skills, knowledge and attitude to support and motivate people with long-term conditions.
- Changing health systems so that they encourage and facilitate self management.
Each of these information and training programmes focused on the three enablers: goal setting, shared agenda setting and goal follow up. The courses were a subject of a full evaluation. Reports on the programme can be found https://www.health.org.uk/funding-and-partnerships/programmes/co-creating-health
Following completion of phase two the materials were fully reviewed based on evidence and feedback and updated.
Particular examples of impact include:
- In Wandsworth, people with depression used significantly fewer consultant appointments and bed days, and had reduced anxiety and depression.
- In Haringey and Islington, people with diabetes had improved clinical outcomes (glucose control, lipids and renal function).
- In Torbay, people with depression were less likely to have consultations with specialists at the mental health trust.
- Several sites reported reduced DNA (did not attend) rates for appointments since the programme was introduced, particularly where individuals had received agenda-setting prompts prior to their appointments.
