Cass’s Centre for Creativity in Professional Practice is participating in the new EPSRC-funded SCAMPI project to support more efficient, effective and creative patient-centric care in the community.
The project will develop a new form of digitalised toolkit that will allow someone living in their own home with a chronic condition, together with their relatives, carers and healthcare professionals, to self-manage both their care of the condition and life with it, sometimes in novel and creative ways. People will interact with the new toolkit through a new form of care plan that will be visual, natural and simple-to-use. The new care plan will enable someone living at home with a chronic condition to customise their life and care according to their individual needs and preferences, with pro-active support for thinking about important care goals and qualities, as well as the means to achieve those goals and qualities. The person will also be able to share the plan with named relatives, their carers and targeted healthcare professionals such as specialist nurses and their GPs, and make joint decisions about customising the care plan so that the person’s needs can be met more effectively, even when these other people are elsewhere, using web technologies.
The project’s launch event will provide you to learn more about the project and planned toolkit, meet the consortium, and provide inputs into research and development.
