Eastern AHSN has been supporting STPs in the East of England region to enhance their plans for self-management.
In November 2016, an Innovation Exchange brought together leading commissioners, providers and patients to meet innovators with solutions that could be used to help self-management. From that Exchange, three projects were instigated and are currently being implemented in Cambridgeshire and Suffolk.
The next Innovation Exchange, embracing self-care, one year on is 16 November 2017. A one year on event, where we will share the progress of the three projects and the lessons learned for wide scale adoption of such solutions in the future. The event also offers the opportunity to explore new possibilities for partnership working.

“People have a key role in protecting their own health, choosing appropriate treatments and managing long-term conditions. Self-management is a term used to include all the actions taken by people to recognise, treat and manage their own health. They may do this independently or in partnership with the healthcare system”.
