The largest ever randomised controlled trial of an approach to improve the health outcomes of patients with long-term conditions through improving the self-management support they received from primary care showed no effect. This seminar will explore why self-management support did not become normal practice within General Practice through looking at the  implementation of tools which were designed to capture the two aspects of self-management support – education (guidebooks for patients) and forming collaborative partnerships (a shared decision-making ) and the wider context of the norms of behaviour change amongst primary health care professionals and the current incentives and working environment operating in primary care in the UK.

Please join us and presenters Anne Kennedy, principal research fellow, and Anne Rogers, Professor of Health Systems Implementation, both from University of Southampton for a lunch time seminar to be held at CPHCE on 29th November. Seats are limited and please RSVP by 26th November for catering purposes.
