Patient Information to Offer and Encourage Engagement :


These are a series of posters from the Stevenage Team to encourage patients to take up Shared Care.  The series if called "DID YOU KNOW Shared Care is...."  and covers handwashing, pre treatment observations, preparing the pack and applying pressure post treatment.  HERE

Many sites have SHARED CARE notice boards to display ideas, posters and information about what Shared care is, what it is not and who to go to for more information.  Its a really simple way to share the message.






Why not create a shared Care focus group with your patients - a Poster for this from the Heart of England team is HERE
