New report on empowering patients with long term conditions

(2 October 2014)

Long term conditions

The Institute of Public Policy Research has published Patients in control: why people with long-term conditions must be empowered 

The report argues that more should be done to recognise and support the amount of self-management done by people with long-term conditions and their carers, and to enable people to work in partnership with healthcare providers to agree the services that fit their needs. It concludes that patients would welcome greater self-determination and that there would be economic benefits too.
