Self-Care for Multiple Long-Term Conditions

Self-Care for Multiple Long-Term Conditions

Our final Health Summit session was focused on patient self-care. This has been a particular focus of the New Models of Care work in the NHS with a drive to help keep people in their own homes for as long as possible; not so much from a cost saving perspective (although this does help) but home is where people want to be; particularly if they have dementia to reduce the confusion around unfamiliar environments. Our innovators showcased an impressive cohort of products.

In our third session at the 2nd Annual Health Summit, we looked at the importance of early intervention; both in terms of early in risk factor detection and interventions for LTCs and products that help to prevent hospitalisations offering a dual benefit of reduced healthcare utlisation but importantly, a better quality of life for the patient.

70+ participants ranging from health technology startups, healthcare professionals and corporates gathered to discuss this year’s focus - multiple long-term conditions (LTCs). LTCs are pressing themes in the NHS with 50% of all GP appointments, 64% of all outpatient appointments and over 70% of inpatient bed days attributable to LTC’s.
