Realising the Value: 'Sparking Self Care' Workshop
Wellbeing Our Way will be holding two workshops in partnership with Positively UK. Positively UK is the Realising the Value partner site leading on peer support.
Realising the Value is an NHS England funded programme to strengthen the case for commissioning patient-led approaches, an ambition of the NHS Five Year Forward View. Approaches include: peer support, self-management education, asset-based approaches in a health and wellbeing context, group activities to promote health and wellbeing, and health coaching.
As part of the programme a series of guides will be published by the Behavioural Insights Team later this year addressing the following areas:
Guide 1: Sparking self-care: Active ingredients for supporting people and communities to self-care (working title): aimed at practitioners including health professionals, voluntary and community groups, peer networks and patient leaders
Guide 2: Spreading Change inside the Health and Care System is aimed at those responsible for designing and commissioning services
Guide 3: Unlocking Change from the Outside is aimed at voluntary and community groups and campaigners seeking to influence policy and commissioning
This is an opportunity to shape the 'Sparking Self Care' guide, to ensure it resonates with the wider support community, reflects the range of approaches of our diverse organisations, ensure it's practical and includes new approaches if appropriate.
