Extract from the foreword

“Since the arrival of the new millennium, the field of health promotion has added many emerging areas related to health to its field of interest and action.

Many of these areas were, of course, anticipated in the Ottawa Charter on Health Promotion; nonetheless there has been an explosion of interest in three critical areas in recent years, namely on the social determinants of health, governance, and Health in All Policies, and more specifically “the translation of Health in All Policies from a policy principle into a policy practice”. Now we have a new and significant book that addresses these three areas in a most exciting way.

The International Union for Health Promotion and Education (IUHPE) acknowledges that many of the solutions to the most pressing health issues reside outside the health sector. It is therefore imperative to facilitate governance practices that enable improved work across sectors in government, the nongovernment sector, academic institutions and the private sector, at all territorial levels.”

Measuring patient experience of integration in the NHS – 30 August 2012

“The NHS Future Forum report on Integration recommended that new patient experience measures should be developed to evaluate patients’ experiences across whole journeys of care.

There is currently no single bespoke measure of patient experience of integration in or across the NHS. Developing measures of integration is difficult due to the very large number of potential patient journeys. But this publication highlights the data sources already available that can help NHS organisations assess experience of integrated care locally.

The Department has identified seven core questions that relate to integration of care that are already asked in existing surveys. NHS organisations can use the answers to these questions to develop a sense of how patients feel about integration between services locally at present.

Interim measures for patient experience at the interfaces between NHS services

Interim integration measures for patient experience spreadsheet provides a summary of the most recent results available for the seven core questions and where to find the existing information.”
