Project: My health, my community
Please note that this project finished in July 2016 and is no longer active.
What did we do?
As part of Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust‘s ‘my health, my community‘ work, the focus of this project was on building a collaborative partnership between all agencies, patients, people and the community in order to establish a ‘virtual’ academy which promotes self-care, community resilience and patient and carer wellbeing.
Why was it important?
This work supported ‘my health, my community’, which aims to help people gain a greater understanding of long-term conditions so they can self-manage and provide much needed support to carers.
How did we do it?
In line with The Health Foundation’s use of ‘evidence scans’, we provided reviews of bespoke patient and carer educational programmes and tools to aid the management of end-of-life care across six areas: cardiovascular disease, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, paediatric diabetes and general end-of-life care.
Who did we work with?
The main outputs from this work are the evidence-based reviews below.
- Caring for someone with COPD at the end-of-life
- Education and support for carers of people at the end-of-life
- Heart failure and staying well and heart failure and end-of-life care
- Stroke and end-of-life care
- Structured diabetes education programmes (SDEP) for children and young people, (CYP) their parents and carers
