The Personalised Care Institute has just been launched and is a virtual training hub for all health and care staff to access the very latest in personalised care training and development. Offering a wide range of flexible and accredited courses from a range of providers, the Institute supports professionals to gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to provide personalised care to their patients.
The NHS Long Term Plan outlined that 2.5 million people will have access to personalised care by 2024 and the training of healthcare professionals is an important step to realising this.
The idea of personalised care isn’t new. It is a partnership approach with motivational interviewing at its heart and includes shared decision making; care and support planning; health coaching and supported self-management.
