Q Exchange ideas
In a rural community, animals are often part of people's everyday life and yet they are often banned from hospital grounds. Research has shown significant benefits to healing and rehabilitation when animals are integrated into care. The inclusion of larger animals like donkeys also includes a greater amount of physical activity and helps to connect people to the green spaces around them
Integrating technology into condition management appraches to improve outcomes and promote digital inclusion which will include a range of self management group programmes that are delivered via Skype covering a range of conditions.
Owen Hughes introduces the ideas Powys Health Teaching Board are working to develop and test with the Q Lab to improve care for people with both mental health problems and persistent back and neck pain.
