Long Term Conditions Diagnostic and Planner
This tool was developed by the DH QIPP LTC Commissioning Development Programme to support local health economy teams to identify where they are now in relation to commissioning for long terms conditions against best practice. Self care and systematizing self care support is one of 10 key areas identified and the tool sets out a range of key activities that should be in place.
It sets out four levels of activity from 'yet to begin' through to 'got it and doing it' and what activities should be happening locally at each level, from 'information giving is ad hoc and not focused on self care' through to 'there is measurable evidence that people with LTCs feel well supported to self care'.
It includes baseline measures and support to action plan.
