Our current healthcare system is under a huge amount of pressure, and the value of professional therapists like you in helping to alleviate this is being increasingly recognised.
The integrated healthcare agenda seeks to take a more holistic, person-centred approach to care that is better coordinated across different health and social care providers. This contrasts with the more traditional approach to healthcare that the NHS was originally designed for, where episodes of illness are treated one at a time as they arise.
Professional therapists can play an important role in this new approach to healthcare, from helping patients to make positive lifestyle changes and take a more active role in managing their health, to addressing ‘effectiveness gaps’ and creating cost and time efficiencies within the NHS.
As well making the provision of health services more efficient, this will help to improve patient experience and health outcomes, and reduce gaps in service delivery.
Want to learn more? With a host of talks by experts in integrated healthcare, research and education, our 2018 FHT Conference, taking place on Thursday 29 November, will look at some of the many ways therapists can be a part of this new approach.
The talks will cover:
- Evidence base and measuring treatment outcomes
- Understanding therapies from a GP’s perspective
- Integrated healthcare success stories and case studies
- Overcoming barriers to integrated healthcare
