NHS initiatives

As discussed previously, holistic care is about treating the whole of something or someone and not just a part. Instead of looking at separate long-term conditions and treating them separately, it means looking at how the long term conditions might affect one another and treating the patient rather than the condition.

These slides provide an overview of some of the recent NHS Initiatives that promote a holistic approach and care for people living with long term conditions.

As you watch the presentation make a note of anything that is already happening in your practice and if there is something you think could be introduced that would make a difference.
