The Patient and Public Involvement, Engagement and Experience (PPIEE) theme underpins everything the Oxford AHSN does. It ensures that working with the public, patients and carers is integral to the work of the AHSN and supports the delivery of person-centred care in our partner organisations.
Sustainable healthcare depends on people being actively engaged in maintaining their health, in managing the illnesses that affect them and being involved in designing and delivering healthcare systems.
To achieve this we need a well-informed population, professionals that can engage with patients and carers as partners and person-centred healthcare that responds to what patients and the public need and say. We will:
- actively involve patients, carers and the public (lay partners) in the work of our networks and programmes
- support patients and carers to be more actively engaged in their own health and care by promoting the use of personalised care plans, shared decision-making, better provision of health information and measurement of outcomes that matter to patients and carers
- listen to, and act on, what patients, carers and the public say about their experience and involvement in care, research and innovation.
All Oxford AHSN Best Care Clinical Networks and other programmes are creating PPIEE plans that demonstrate how they will include the commitments outline above in their projects and workstreams.
We are building a network of committed senior leaders comprising both professionals and patients that will create change in individual care, organisational culture and systems of care. We are working with all our partners and patient involvement and experience colleagues across the Oxford AHSN region to make this happen. One example is the Leading Together programme.
