Rijken, M., Schellevis, F. (2018) Idenifying target groups for person-centred integrated care among multi-morbid populations. European Journal of Public Health 28 (Suppl 4), November 2018.

Silvar, A. (2018) Bridging the gap: person centred, place-based self-managment support. Future Healthcare Journal 5(3): 188-91. Placing the person at the centre of their health and care has been a keuy part of health and care policy for nearly 2 decades. Fundamental to this approach is the role self-management support plays in increasing the confidence, skills and knowledge of a person in managing their health and wellbeing. This practical review article sets out to explore the historical context of self-management in England, its current status and the challenges faced in delivering self-managment programmes. The demand on the health and care system continues to grow and so the need to move to a more holistic system of care with the person at its centre is freater than it has ever been before. With an increasely fiscally retistricted environment with which to operat, how can commissioners, health specialists and service providers work together to develop integrated pathways of care that provide the right care, at the right time and in the right place.
