Validating a model of chronic illness and family caregiving

As a consequence, the delivery of effective, high-quality chronic care requires a systemic transformation [], a framework for delivering care to patients with chronic conditions and for guiding quality improvement in chronic care.This model is focused on providing proactive, planned, integrated and patient-centred care.Patients were recruited through patient organisations for a variety of health conditions and had different characteristics (age, gender, socioeconomic).These patients evaluated the 28 reactive items of the questionnaire, regarding appropriateness, readability, acceptability and necessary time of response for each item, as well as two possible types of response scales.A scoping review was carried out using MEDLINE and Web-of-Knowledge.Only studies in English or Spanish published in the last ten years (until January 2015) were included considering the availability of a previous high quality systematic review conducted by Vrijhoef et al [].Methods: Development and validation of a scale conducting a literature review, expert panel, pilot and field studies with 356 chronic primary care patients, to assess content and face validities and reliability.

In a systematic review, Vrijhoef et al [] developed the Patient Perceptions of Integrated Care survey (PPIC), assessing a six-dimension model of integrated care.Introduction: The experience of chronic patients with the care they receive, fuelled by the focus on patient-centeredness and the increasing evidence on its positive relation with other dimensions of quality, is being acknowledged as a key element in improving the quality of care.There are a dearth of accepted tools and metrics to assess patient experience from the patient’s perspective that have been adapted to the new chronic care context: continued, systemic, with multidisciplinary teams and new technologies.In this study, patient experience is defined as the information that the person facilitates on what has happened (to her) in her continued interaction with the health and social care professionals and services and on how she has lived that interaction and its outcomes.Meanwhile integrated care was conceptualised according to the Chronic Care Model and its subsequent adaptation by the WHO [ The literature was reviewed to identify existing tools and their characteristics to evaluate patient experience with integrated chronic care.
