UCLPartners  has launched a new package of digital resources and practical support to help primary care teams continue to effectively provide care to patients with long-term conditions. 

Body

The team, led by GPs and pharmacists, have developed a long-term condition framework and comprehensive support package for stratifying care according to level of risk with new models of care based on four core principles:

  • Virtual by default
  • Mobilising the wider workforce (including pharmacists, HCAs, nursing associates, social prescribers and others
  • Step change in support for self-management
  • Digital innovation, including tools for self-management and technology for remote monitoring

The conditions they are focussing on are:

  • Asthma
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD)
