There is a growing amount of evidence and reviews that look at the different elements of taking a personalised, aligned and holistic approach to the management of care for patients with long-term conditions. Each of these different elements have an impact on clinical indicators, patient satisfaction and their feeling of being involved in their care.
One problem that we noticed, when investigating the evidence, is that there is a lack of consistency amongst organisations in terms of providing professionals with the required skills to really embed the different elements and to implement and measure the impact.
To our knowledge, the Aligned Care Programme is unique, in that it combines many of these different elements into one programme to provide the health professional with the skills to develop their consultation approach and combine the benefits of the individual elements.
This page is intended to provide a sample of the evidence and reviews of these different elements for your perusal. Where appropriate, we have provided links to the full details for further information.
