We have had this tool available for a while but I’ve never found it practical to use. ‘Coaching for health’ where appropriate, works better. In ‘real GP Land’ we have to do diabetes, frailty, mental health, poly pharmacy reviews to tick tick tick, often more than one of these plans in the same patient. Most GPs and PNs will engage patients in ‘this is what you might do to improve your own health, let’s explore how we can help you with this etc etc, this is what we can do etc etc’ continuity is Jey here. In the real world practices are struggling to recruit, stick to 10 minute appointments so as not to jeopardise access.
Need a big injection of realism into academia!
Feedback from our members indicate that what we are providing is more beneficial as it’s a living approach and supports from a holistic approach which meets all needs from the hierarchy of needs.
Gosh -that's not very helpful.
Yes there is a charge for the licence. This can be obtained from Insignia Health website.
I can see how this might challenge the medical model, of we do 'this' to you, but I wonder about the possibility of such a measure, or future version X, being used for nefarious purposes. The response then might be, as bartleby would pit it, "i would prefer not to".
1. What costs would be associated with using the privately licenced PAM?
2. What alternative measures are available?
