Abstract:

It is increasingly recognised that increasing the effective targeting and promotion of self-care support for long-term conditions requires a focus on patient contexts and networks. This session aims to:

i) present evidence from research which has explored how the power and capacity of personal networks can take the aspiration of self- management beyond the confines of traditional medical and health care settings.

ii) present the development and implementation of GENIE – a webbased tool which comprises: network mapping; user-centred preference elicitation and need assessment; and facilitated engagement with resources
