Person Partner Place
‘Person, Partner, Place’ (PPP) was a pilot workforce development programme delivered to staff in health, social care and voluntary sector across Manchester between July – December 2017. PPP aimed to support integrated teams to provide the best possible person-centred care through the use of asset-based approaches that build on the strengths of people and their communities. Read the summary evaluation report of the pilot programme here.
The PPP programme is made up of three modules that can be locally delivered:
- Module 1:Introduction to asset-based approaches to Person Centred Care (1 day)
- Module 2:Facilitating asset-based approaches to Person Centred Care (2 days)
- Module 3:Conducting asset-based conversations (2 days). With option of ‘train the trainer’ course (6 days)
PPP FREE online training
We have devised a FREE e-learning course linked to the content of Module 1. This training aims to improve your knowledge of asset-based approaches to person-centred care.
PPP is facilitated by the Big Life Consortium group, a partnership between Big Life Group, TPC Health and Manchester Metropolitan University and funded by Health Education England North West in partnership with Manchester CCG.
What do we mean by asset-based approaches?
Asset-based approaches value the capacity, connections, skills and knowledge of individuals and communities. Approaches might include:
- asset-based conversations with patients to understand motivations and share decision making
- connecting individuals to community assets, eg. peer support and local associations
- working with communities to develop local service provision and activities.
Asset-based approaches can help to strengthen the factors that support good health and wellbeing, protect against poor health and foster communities that help sustain health and wellbeing.
Why is this needed?
The vision for the NHS is to develop a new relationship with people and communities in which people’s own life goals are what count. To achieve this, the health and care system needs to start with what matters to individuals and recognise the central contribution that resilient communities can make to improved wellbeing.
What are the benefits?
Asset-based approaches can help to:
- enable people to take control of their health and wellbeing
- manage demand for health and social care services
- develop more resilient communities and greater social connections.
