Evaluation of VitruCare™

Improving lives through innovation and supported self-care for people with long-term conditions and towards end of life.

The ageing population and increasing number of people with co-morbidities requires general practice and primary care organisations to work in partnership with patients to support self-management in order to improve the quality of care. This research follows two cohorts of patients, those managing a long-term condition (LTC) and others at the end of life (EoL) and related health professionals to explore their perspectives of using the internet based program VitruCare™
