Managing Complex Needs
Through this theme, we will implement a step change in the delivery of care for people with complex needs arising from long term conditions (LTCs). This will result in services that are more person-centred, cost effective and that will improve quality of life for patients and their ability to undertake gainful employment.
Initially, the theme will focus upon musculoskeletal and neurological conditions as exemplar LTCs that may run throughout life, and which are associated with the development of complex physical, psychological and social needs arising from diseases themselves or as a consequence of therapy. Both conditions have a serious negative impact on health and quality of life, need long-term therapy with a variety of medicines (each with many potential major side effects) and require care to be delivered between hospitals and the community.
Lessons learnt about the organisation and delivery of services for these conditions will directly inform changes needed in service delivery for other complex neurological and rheumatological LTCs that will be addressed.
