About the Personalised Care Planning programme

Personalised care planning aims to ensure that people with long term conditions are more involved in decisions about their care through a care planning discussion. This focuses on what is important to them with goal setting and the provision of information and support for self care. Care planning aims to address wider, holistic needs which should open up wider choices including services to support self care or services to meet other needs such as social or psychological.

The personalised care planning e-learning course has been developed on behalf of the Department of Health by NHS Employers and is delivered by Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare. It is suitable for all health and social care professionals involved in managing a long term condition.

More information

The course is broken down into three modules to allow users to complete it at their own pace.

  • Module 1: An introduction to personalised care planning
    Understand what personalised care planning is, who it’s for and why it is important.
  • Module 2: Understanding how personalised care planning works
    Understand the steps needed to introduce personalised care planning and the four phases of the consultation cycle.
  • Module 3: Skills and behaviours for effective personalised care planning
    Understand the skills required to implement personalised care plans effectively.

In addition there are two case studies and a knowledge assessment. There is also useful information on the common core principles for self care and a document showing the links between the core principles and the NHS Knowledge Skills Framework.
