Get the Measure of your Patients
PAM and PharmOutcomes are featured in Autumn 2018 edition of Today’s Pharmacist.
The community pharmacy of the future looks set to focus on empowering patients with long-term conditions to better manage their health.
Evidence shows that people with chronic illness enjoy better outcomes when they are supported to self-manage their health; they report better experiences of care and require fewer unplanned admissions to hospital.
It is well-recognized that patient activation can be used effectively to develop and deliver care and services that meet individuals’ needs. By understanding a person’s knowledge, skills and confidence, healthcare providers can tailor treatment plans to their needs and support them in the most appropriate and cost-effective way.
