Self Care Webkit

This page will bring together all the PrescQIPP self care resources and campaign materials as well as showcase good practice examples of projects in self care and signpost to self care resources available for organisations to use to support their own self care campaigns.

Tools include project planning materials as well as campaign materials for different common ailments which can be treated as self care with the support of a pharmacist. The campaign materials will all follow the same format so that healthcare professionals and patients become familiar with them.

T8: The PrescQIPP Self Care Webkit, Bulletin and Briefing

The self care bulletin discusses why self care is an important part of care and is becoming increasingly important as we face times of austerity. Patients purchasing remedies for self care from their community pharmacists and using the community pharmacists as the first port of call for common ailments can release significant savings for the NHS to re-invest in local healthcare systems.

Project Planning Tool

The project planning tools allows commissioners to identify key stakeholders, consider strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of a project and also consider the best way to ensure there is buy in to drive the project forward locally.

Patient Information Resources

We have developed a range of patient information resources to support self care. These can be distributed via pharmacists and also GPs. There are also PowerPoint presentations available which can be adapted for local use and played in GP waiting rooms, community pharmacies, and health centres etc.

Self care patient information leaflet

Speak to your local pharmacist  is an adaptable leaflet where you can inform patients how much resource is used on self care and what this could be re-invested in locally

Self care presentation

No prescription required pad can be used within the consultation for ailments where there isn’t an immediate clinical need for treatment to inform patients that they can seek advice and treatment for common ailments from their community pharmacists. It can also be used if the GP considers there is an immediate clinical need to prescribe but would like to provide the information to the patient for next time.

Self Care Videos: A New Addition to PrescQIPP’s Implementation Resources

PrescQIPP is pleased to launch two new video resources to support self care work in your area, one for patients and one to share with colleagues. The videos were created in collaboration with Health and Care Videos, a trading arm of Torbay and South Devon NHS Trust that is working to create a library of videos for use in hospital, community and training settings.

The two PrescQIPP videos have been produced as part of a pilot following feedback from subscribers that videos would be a welcome addition to our resources. Producing videos is normally prohibitively expensive but the sharing model that Health and Care Videos has adopted means we can now consider creating low-cost, easily adaptable videos to support a variety of our future work plan items, for example inhaler technique tools or staff training videos.  

Introducing the videos

Patient video: ‘Looking after you and your family. How ready are you?’

This video is intended for use in various settings and materials, such as:

  • Waiting room screens
  • Local pharmacies
  • Surgery and CCG websites
  • Social media sites, e.g. Facebook, Twitter
  • Patient materials, e.g. letters, patient information leaflets, posters
  • Local press
  • Patient networks, HealthWatch, schools etc.

Professional video: ‘How to help your patients to care for themselves’

This video provides guidance to CCG and GP practice staff on how to get the best value from the patient facing video, ensuring that it is seen by as many people as possible. We hope that this second staff video is a helpful resource which makes the programme much easier for you to use.

How to use the videos

Customising the videos with your logos, images and local messages

You will see that the videos carry the NHS / PrescQIPP logos. Our agreement with Health and Care Videos is that PrescQIPP subscribers can use these versions freely in any subscribed area - please ensure you're logged in to view embedding instuctions below. However, they can also produce edited versions carrying your CCG/CSU/HB logo, resource images and contact details, so that it looks like your very own material. There is a cost of £95 to rebrand one of the videos for you, and £150 for the pair of videos, which we feel is very reasonable for a locally branded campaign.

All you need to do is email info@healthandcarevideos.com with a high-resolution version of your logo, any local documents you want added and what you would like to appear on the closing slide at the end of the video. They will provide you with your local version within three working days. You will receive an MP4 video file and an embed code which you can use to load the videos on your websites.

We hope that you find these videos a useful addition to the PrescQIPP resources. We also recommend taking a look through the existing video library, which is growing every month: http://www.healthandcarevideos.com/library/a-to-z/
