News: Scotland’s House of Care – highlighted in WHO breifing

Ewan News

The World Health Organization (WHO) has produced a practice brief on ‘continuity and coordination of care’ intended to support the implementation of the WHO framework on integrated person-centred health services.

This brief has mentioned Scotland’s House of Care Programme as a key example in collaborative planning of care and shared decision-making.

The WHO practice brief highlights eight key priorities for achieving greater continuity of care and care coordination:

  1. Continuity with a primary care professional
  2. Collaborative planning of care and shared decision-making
  3. Case management for people with complex needs
  4. Collocated services or a single point of access
  5. Transitional or intermediate care
  6. Comprehensive care along the entire pathway
  7. Technology to support continuity and care coordination
  8. Building workforce capability.
