Supporting people to have the best
wellbeing (self care)
Dr Katie Coleman
5 December 2013
‘Self care’ and what this means
• People being supported to look after themselves.
• ‘self empowerment’ – being empowered by being given the
ability to make choices, to be listened to and to be heard.
• ‘you are disempowered by being ill. You need services which
empower you as you find that you lose your voice’
• Its about care and not medication / medical help. It was felt
this ethos can get lost.
• ‘patients need to not have to be an expert.’ - those patients
who have lower activation levels are intrinsically more scared
and overwhelmed by self care.
• To ensure that patients don’t feel scared – they need
knowledge and to be empowered to make choices.
What are we doing around self care?
Self care review with patients
• Tools and pilots to support self care
Care plans can be tailored for each patient and integrated into their care
Provides a method to evaluate efforts to increase motivation
The degree to which we can support and improve patients’ abilities determines in large
part their health outcomes.
Currently surveying our 44 000 patients who have LTC to discover their activation level.
Self management programmes
Shared decision making
• Helping patients reach a decision – when they hit a crossroads in their health
• Where a simple choice is not possible, rather a number of treatment options
need to be considered.
• Decision Aids
• Clear and easy information to the patients on the condition and the treatment
options. (In depth pathway tools, apps, website, printed out sheets, films).
How can people be supported to stay out of hospital
and be looked after in the community?
2. How can you help support lifestyle change in the local
What support skills do you need to do this?
Do you feel your life and community supports your
health and why? (Please think about non medical factors
such as your social networks, your home and your personal
