How can we effectively support our patients or clients to self - manage their long term condition or risk factors?  The Activation and Self Management Programme is one way that we can do this.

Join us for this half day event

June 21st 9am-1pm

Ageas Bowl, Southampton

Building on last year’s Wessex Patient Activation Measure (PAM) and Self-management event, the Wessex Activation & Self-Management Programme (WASP) and Wessex Clinical Network presents another sharing good practice event. This event aims to explore the current situation with regards to self-management support across Wessex, taking a system-wide view (including CCGs, health organisations, management and frontline staff). We will discuss and consider the benefits of self-management approaches for all, shared challenges teams face and will highlight and celebrate local success stories to share learning.

The event features presentation from national and local experts on self management. 

The programme includes presentations on:

  • 'Why self management is important?' presented by Anya De Iongh, Senior Self-management Coach & Lead for Primary Care Development: Help & Care
  • 'Changing the way we work to support self-management' presented by Dr Ollie Hart, GP and Health Coach with experience of using nationally endorsed enablers of self-managements such as the Patient Activation Measure
  • The national perspective by Jim Philips from the Personalised Care Group, NHS England
  • Feedback from the Wessex WASP system-wide review of self-management (focused upon diabetes support)
  • Evidence of quality improvement initiatives from across Wessex related to supported self-management and behaviour change.
