Brent Self Care Workshop
Thu 8 September 2016, 09:30 – 11:30 BST
Welcome to the Self-Care Workshop. This session has been arranged to take further input from local voluntary & community organisations on how we can develop a directory to better support patients.
Currently, CVS Brent is providing support to the new Self-Care pilot by mapping different services that are suitable for patients who have varying degrees of Patient Activiation.
Patient Activation is a measure of a person's skills, confidence and knowledge to manage their own health. It's simple to find out, like measuring blood pressure, and is scored from one to four.
This session will be useful for community organisations interested in taking on new patients and would suit organisations that have the capacity to provide support for more people. We will also use this session to "refine" our approach to assigning a level(s) to each service and help to shape a consistent approach in matching patients with suitable activities.
Light refreshments will be provided, and as an added incentive, a £10 high street voucher will be made available for every organisation that is able to send a representative.
