The Full Aligned Care Programme is provided over 8 half day sessions and is for Health Professionals and Health Organisations who recognise that now is the time to change the way that they have provided care for patients with long-term conditions.
They may now know that continuing with the standard model of care, by treating the individual disease rather than the patient, is demotivating for their staff, limits the positive impact on clinical indicators, leads to unproductive processes and multiple consultations and impacts patient satisfaction and engagement with the management of their health.
As a result, they want to incorporate the required skills to take an aligned, whole person and holistic approach to patient care to help improve the clinical outcomes and quality of life for patients with long term conditions by empowering patients and their carers.
With a unique approach, combining clinical, psychological, motivational interviewing and coaching perspectives, the emphasis of this programme is to enable Health Care Professionals to gain the ability to help empower their patients with multiple morbidities to manage their own care.
The Full Aligned Care Programme covers ways of addressing an individual’s full range of needs, taking into account their health, personal, family, social, economic, educational, mental health, ethnic and cultural background and personal circumstances. It teaches Health Professionals the required skills to align the holistic needs of the patient with their medical requirements to produce a plan of care in partnership with the patient which fits with each individuals and the patient can then take ownership of.
