European Society of Person Centered Healthcare (ESPCH6) Sixth Annual Conference And Awards Ceremony

Mosaic will be one of the keynote Lectures:

‘Intrinsic capacity and “healthy” aging: where do the domains of the clinical, the non-clinical, the person, and the social and emotional and community intersect? On the need to consider holistic, empathic processing within general needs/falls risks assessment in community-based home care’.

Key themes at ESPCH6 will include the impact of Digital Health Revolution/Al/caring robots on the PCC, the latest thinking on social prescribing as a recent addition to the PCC armoury, the most recent developments in decision-making strategies, and the new concepts of health and illness which are emerging as a consequence of the continuing evolution of the person-centered clinical method.

About the Presentation

In a 2017 paper, “Operationalising the Concept of Intrinsic Capacity in Clinical Settings”, the WHO stated that Intrinsic Capacity “is a composite of all the physical and mental attributes on which an individual can draw”, that healthy ageing “depends upon an individuals’ Intrinsic Capacity, their environment and the interactions between the two.” Studies have found that subjective successful ageing is often independent of disability and chronic physical illness.

Addressing healthy ageing means we must move beyond the clinical and the support of functional abilities to address the wider social and emotional components of self and the relationship of self with environment.

This presentation addresses empathic person centered processes, interfaces and interactions at the point at which the domains of the clinical, non-clinical supports, the person and community intersect. These are most evident in the general needs’ assessment in community settings and the parallel processes of falls risks assessment and their conceptualisation. Domains have both environment and scope and it is the specific attributes of each that are relevant when conceptualising and realizing person centered care.

Many standard assessment processes lend the appearance of “viewing windows” where the person is measured and assessed, and outcomes rendered with respect to their deficits. Planning for intrinsic capacity requires, over and above clinical baselines, that we know the person, their preferences, life history, capacities and environments.

The presentation addresses empathy, its social and neurological underpinnings as important components of person centered processes. According to Decety (2015), empathy is “an interpersonal communication system that elicits response from others, helps to determine priorities within relationships, and holds people together in social groups”.

As we develop person centered care we also realize that the wider model is dependent on assets, environments and interactions within our communities that lie beyond the immediate domains of clinical and non-clinical supports.

Shared Decision Making: Person-Centred Care and The Values Agenda (SDM-I)

A 2-Day Conference jointly organised by the European Society for Person Centered Healthcare (ESPCH), London, UK, the Collaborating Centre for Values-based Practice in Health and Social Care (VBP) at St. Catherine’s College, Oxford, UK, and the European Institute for Person Centered Health and Social Care (EIPCHSC), University of West London, UK.

As UK NICE guidelines note, shared decision-making involves health professionals and patients working together with the goal of putting people at the centre of decisions about their own treatment and care. The 2015 Montgomery ruling makes shared decision-making based on values and evidence the basis of consent to medical treatment, with wide-ranging implications for healthcare practices, law and policy. The conference will bring together clinicians, policy-makers, patient experts and academics from a range of disciplines to consider the challenges health providers face in this new environment. What shifts are necessary in our current thinking and practice to make shared decision-making a reality? What barriers are there to establishing shared decision-making as the norm in health practice and policy? How do we measure success – or the lack of it – in these contexts? What are the other philosophical and empirical research questions which warrant urgent consideration?

Price per Attendee: Attendance for the two days of the Conference is £200 GBP; Attendance for one day of the Conference (either 25th or 26th March 2019) is £120 GBP; Attendance for the Networking Cocktail Reception (25th March 2019, following the proceedings of the First Day Sessions) is £40 GBP.

Jane Teasdale Co-owner of Mosaic Home Care & Martha Miller (Client Service Liaison of our person centered care model “The Meaning of Me®”. Will be attending this conference in the UK on March 25th and 26th, 2019

Implementing and managing the non-clinical psychosocial model of person centered community integrated care: barriers, tools and opportunities within our communities

Fifth Annual Conference and Awards Ceremony of the European Society for Person Centered Healthcare (ESPCH5) http://pchealthcare.org.uk/conferences/2018/12/fifth-annual-conference-and-awards-ceremony-european-society-person-centered-hea

The psychosocial components of being, once considered clinically irrelevant, are recognised as having material impact on physical and mental well-being. Issues of social vulnerability, loneliness, social networks and community structure are slowly being drawn into the health care model.
How we engage at a meaningful level and how we address the wider dimensions of psychosocial health is not without problem of definition, organisation, funding, implementation and frame.

Fully addressing the psychosocial lies not just in meaningful conversation, or in the provision of interests and activities that satiate the hedonistic need. Just as important is the eudaimonic dimension, the opportunity for personal growth and meaning. Tying all these together requires rich social and community habitats that afford opportunities to generate vital social and community networks. Indeed, certain dynamics of social network theory necessitate meaningful interaction at the clinical level.

In “The Meaning of Me®”: A Canadian blueprint for addressing the complex whole that is the person at the centre of the community-based homecare services model”, Teasdale et al discuss a working framework for addressing the non-clinical psychosocial for those living in place with complex care needs. Briefly, the model starts with knowing the person and meaningful conversation, then to opportunities for engaging in activities and interests, and then to a wider supporting community architecture.

In this talk we extend the model and address inter alia issues of holistic awareness, of organisation, of funding, of social prescribing and social networks, of the need to incorporate social and community objectives into the theory of the firm and of the risks of over institutionalisation of solutions. We also address how social and community networks could be enhanced via community mapping and how technology and cross sector collaboration could be used to address the psychosocial within the complex universe of diverse health care needs and personal preference.

Introducing an Internationally Recognized Person Centered, Community Integrated Model of Home Care

International Federation on Ageing 14th Global Conference

Home care is one of the furthest points along the chain of care that you can get for the older adult. It occupies critical space in the care continuum, dominating large parts of the person’s space and time. The home is especially relevant to aging in place dynamics and the highly important dimensions of the mind and community interaction.

Mosaic’s blue print for Person Centered Care extends the notion that home care based services should be implemented collaboratively with the individual and their families to one that also embraces the voice and the rich habitat of the mind and the being of the person.

It is one that is also especially sensitive to the importance of community and the person’s place in the community. In this sense the model is one that delivers personal support and medical care along well defined client centered protocols differentiated by a fluid organic relationship core. Not only is the client front and center in the relationship but the care provider itself develops a wider set of integrated relationships with the community.

At a fundamental level, the person centered intervention begins a conversational framework that becomes an interactive journey between all those involved in the care relationship. It differs from other similarly framed interventions paying attention to, as Daniel Kahneman would say, the remembering self and the experiencing self: to remember, to create to positive experience.  The framework is sensitive to the need for creative space and loop backs to the person’s mental and physical interests and community interaction.

Much of the inspiration for the development of the model came from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation report, A Better Life-What Older People with High Support Needs Value (Jeanne Katz et al, 2011).

The talk will discuss how the service model is framed and delivered, how it interacts with the person being cared for and the supports, services and exigencies of wider community engagement. As the growing literature confirms, a failure to embrace the many inputs that impact both physical and mental well being is costly for society as a whole and, at times, devastating for the individual.

Two immediate public policy implications arise from our model. The first is that it is designed to be delivered as a cost effective, stand alone, component at a “global system level”, which means that serving the higher level dimensions of personhood could become a standard component of public sector healthcare delivery. The second relates to the design of an interface between for profit and not for profit elements and activities within the community and the person in care to facilitate resource efficient “integration”; this we believe is critical to the evolution of an integrated community and the ability to age “fully” in place.
