Many patients need help to self-manage long-term conditions. This guide reflects the experiences of successful physiotherapy service leads.

File 217858

In England approximately 15 million people live with one or more long-term health conditions. This is expected to increase by a third over ten years as the population ages.

With training and support, between 70 and 80 per cent of people could take a proactive role in their own healthcare, with added self-confidence and a reduced dependency on caregivers.

This guide can help you understand the following:

  • Your population demographics
  • The prevalence and profile of various long-term conditions
  • Your population profile and commonly-spoken languages
  • How, where and when your population prefers to access information
  • Local facilities and support groups for patients
