Integrated and holistic care
The care of people with long-term conditions currently accounts for 70% of healthcare expenditure. Feedback from patients suggests the care system has a long way to go in providing patient-focussed, seamless care, integrated across organisational boundaries.
In this, our largest theme, we will work with local organisations and patients to improve the management of long-term conditions and evaluate new models of care designed to improve integration, patient satisfaction and efficiency.
Professor Christian Mallen
- We will undertake studies that are an immediate local priority, that can plausibly generate evaluations of widespread roll-out, and that explicate theory.
- We will co-design and pilot new evidence-based interventions, which can be tested in multiple sites through NIHR-funded research.
- Our results will be used to influence policy at home and abroad in areas of massive interest to services, patients and citizens.
