Bridges in other long-term conditions

In September 2014 Bridges was awarded an Innovation Grant from the Health Education South London and Health Innovation Network to develop the programme for people with other long term neurological conditions.

Project title: Enhancing the skills of the community rehabilitation and enablement workforce to deliver a co-produced, provider-based model of self-management support for people living with long-term neurological conditions

Partnering with community rehabilitation, enablement teams and voluntary groups in Lewisham, South London Bridges aims to develop an individualised self-management support package that reflect the needs and diversity of this South London community. The project builds on the Bridges stroke self-management programme shown to change attitudes, beliefs and practice amongst the workforce and improve confidence and functional capacity of patients using the programme. A patient held workbook and staff training resources will be modified from the existing Bridges stroke workbook and co-produced by people from the local community living with long term conditions neurological conditions. The impact on workforce attitudes, beliefs and experience of integrating self-management will be evaluated as well as patients’ self-efficacy, quality of life and functional capacity. The project starts in November 2014 and last for 1 year, more details and updates to follow.
