Managing Chronic Disease Sally Singh, Theme Lead, MCD Theme CLAHRC East Midlands is hosted by Nottinghamshire Healthcare

Background 15.4 million people in England have a long term condition People with long term conditions use a significant proportion of health care services (50% of all GP appointments and 70% of days spent in hospital beds), and their care absorbs 70% of hospital and primary care budgets in England. Cardiovascular diseases account for most deaths (17.3 million worldwide), followed by followed by cancers (7.6 million), respiratory diseases (4.2 million), and diabetes (1.3 million). They share four risk factors: tobacco use, physical inactivity, the harmful use of alcohol and unhealthy diets.

Outcome frameworks

Overarching indicators • Health-related quality of life for people with long-term conditions • Improvement areas • Ensuring people feel supported to manage their LTC • Improving functional ability in people with LTC • Reducing time spent in hospital by people with LTC • Enhancing quality of life for carers

Why us? Strong track record of research and innovation Excellent research infra-structure across the EM (Biomedical Research Units) National Centre for Sports and Exercise Medicine

Our proposed areas of focus • Long term conditions• the use of IT systems to support decision making and delivery of care (diabetes and chronic kidney disease) • interventions designed to support and educate patients (COPD and cardiac disease). These are components of an integrated care pathway that personalise and stratify care appropriately; an important feature of the overall strategy to manage chronic disease

Our projects (1) To develop an effective primary care intervention to reduce mortality and morbidity in patients with type 2 diabetes and (Kamlesh Khunti Leicester &Nadeem Qureshi, Nottingham). • An intervention at GP level using GP computer prompts in conjunction with enhancing the skills of key practice staff, with the aim of supporting individuals with microalbuminuria and diabetes, who are at high risk of CVD and CKD. • To test for feasibility and generalisability of this approach in the East Midlands.

Our projects (2) • The IMPAKT CKD tool (Nigel Brunskill) IMproving Patient care and Awareness of Kidney disease progression Together Aim - to use a primary care informatics solution to identify patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and other long term conditions in primary care who are at risk of AKI, needing unscheduled care or acute admission. - to deliver a self-management intervention to prevent admission.

Our projects (3) • Self management - for COPD (Sally Singh & Katy Mitchell) • Previously tested a supported self management approach • Aim - to test wider roll out and local delivery based in primary care

Our projects (4) • Maintenance post cardiac rehabilitation (post MI patients) To determine whether implementation of a structured education and physical activity programme in primary care, to people who are at high future risk of diabetes following a myocardial infarction, will reduce cardiovascular risk and dysglycaemia • Use of technology in cardiac rehabilitation (web based intervention) To determine whether a Web-Based Cardiac rehabilitation programme is a realistic alternative for those declining or dropping out Of conventional rehabilitation
