Abstract
AIM:
The aim of the project/evaluation was to establish a Community of Practice (CoP) with the purpose of enhancing the skills of the workforce and developing learning resources to improve service delivery for people with long-term conditions.
BACKGROUND:
International and national policy drivers espousing new community-based inter-agency models of delivery have led to rapid transformation of services for people with long-term conditions. Many in the workforce lack the skills required to respond to the increased acuity of patients or function within a fully integrated, inter-agency service.
