This event, targeted at health professionals and those with long-term conditions, consisted of two short presentations about living with a longterm condition. It explored how information and decision-making may contribute to wellbeing and the information needs of those with long-term conditions. Each presentation was followed by a discussion between healthcare professionals and people with long-term conditions.
An event attendee said: “The presenters shared some theoretical information and facilitated discussion and debate. In the afternoon, a practical skills development session was offered to help people put this into practice”
Dr Carol Bond said “It was great having patients and professionals talking to each other about their respective views. Very positive feedback was received, and participants said that they had gained from attending the event”.
