The Person-centred Complex Care theme addresses common health and social care problems, focussing on the delivery of care in complex environments for people with chronic conditions and multi-morbidity, within a changing NHS and social care environment.
The Person-Centred Complex Care (PCCC) Theme addresses common health and social care problems, focusing on the delivery of care in complex environments for people with chronic conditions and multi- morbidity, within a changing NHS and social care landscape (10-year NHS plan, Primary Care contract reform, Universal Personalised Care). Our academic experts have internationally outstanding track-records for delivering research, resulting in better more cost-effective care in for example: cardiometabolic disease, infection, epilepsy, clinical pharmacology. The theme embraces physical and mental health approaches holistically, as recommended by our Partners.
The overarching aims are to:
· Improve the delivery, efficiency and equity of care
· Deliver research and implementation projects that cross the barriers of primary, secondary and tertiary NHS care/social care
· Build research capacity and teams to co-produce programmes of work prioritised by our Partners and local populations.
PCCC will host partner-led projects, develop work from CLAHRC NWC and collaborate with other ARCs. Proposals co-developed and delivered with Partners and Public/Community advisers will be prioritised according to the needs of providers, commissioners and the populations they serve, and their potential to transform the quality and/or delivery of care. An overarching equity focus and co-production will be mainstreamed across all programmes, which will include smaller responsive mode projects and feasibility/pilot studies to underpin large external collaborative grant applications.
Short-term (years 1-2)
· Identify and co-develop projects (6-8/year) responsive to Partner and community needs.
This programme will be refined in regular reviews of process, outcomes and impacts, and the priorities set by ARC NWC Stakeholders
· Co-develop four larger projects from CLAHRC NWC work (AF, Epilepsy, multiple-morbidity, reducing unplanned care).
· Submit at least three external grant applications.
· Integrate this programme with capacity-building, IMPACT, research training studentships (PhDs/Masters) and Knowledge Mobilisation Internships. Identify opportunities for working with industry and SMEs in collaboration with AHSN-NWC (Innovation Agency).
· Support collaborative projects from other ARCs and national themes
