The concept of patient activation or self-management recognises that people can if given appropriate support, become confident and knowledgeable partners in their own care, making day-to-day decisions and judgments on how to effectively manage their health.
For some people with complex health conditions and social circumstances this journey may take many years, sometimes compounded by the health care system itself.
At Help & Care we have been working in partnership CEmPaC and the Dorset Primary Care Training Hub to create training courses for Health and Care professionals.
These 3 courses have received accreditation by the Personalised Care Institute (PCI), this means they have been assessed against the PCI’s rigorous quality assurance & accreditation framework, so you can be assured that they meet the very highest standards of training

As a GP, I see the value every day of patients making informed decisions about their health care following a personalised conversation about ‘what matters to them most to them’. Having a multi-disciplinary clinical and non-clinical workforce engaging with patients in this way, will enhance patient experience, support informed decision making and self-care resulting in better health outcomes
