Spring Conference 2018 - Friday 11th May
A very informative morning and productive afternoon was had by all at our meeting hosted by EPP Wales.
Special Advisor to NHS England, Jim Phillips shared his views on the ways in which SMRC self-management programmes are integral to the successful implementation of NHS England's Personalised Care Operating Model (PCOM). A lively Open Forum session in the afternoon concluded with Network members agreeing a number of priorities for the coming year; including using our strength in numbers to develop a common language for marketing SMRC programmes, with a particular focus on supporting local health commissioners meet the priorities identified in the PCOM.
This is what some of our colleagues thought of the day:
"The sessions were really welcoming, informative and enjoyable. I have gone away with lots of ideas and tools to action."
"Thank you - feel very motivated to go back and put ideas into practice and use new knowledge from the day."
"A great opportunity to learn from colleagues and go back to the office with new vigour."
"There is a real opportunity for those of us committed to evidence based self-management patient information to come together under the banner of person centred care to maximise the opportunities offered by the Five Year Forward View".

I have joined the Stanford Coordinators' Network to share best practice and learn. There are many coordinators out there so a lot of experience to offer each other but previously we have not been linked up- I am now the only person in post locally delivering the programme. I am very supportive of this Network and am looking forward to attending the Spring Conference
