Objectives 1.Overview: the National Council on Patient Information and Education (NCPIE) 2. Case Studies of Current NCPIE Initiatives 3. Future Public / Private Partnerships
Introduction to the National Council on Patient Information & Education Decades before patient safety, medication adherence, or patient empowerment became part of our lexicon, they informed the heart and soul of NCPIE’s mission: To stimulate and improve communication of information on the appropriate use of medicines to consumers and health care professionals.
Since 1982, NCPIE has: Brought together public and private stakeholders who are committed to improving communication about the safe, appropriate use of medicines; Empowered and engaged consumers, patients and caregivers so they can have informed dialogue with clinicians (and other trusted sources) about their medicines, to optimize outcomes; Created and implemented programs to ensure that medicine information is useful, timely, and scientifically accurate in whatever form – and for whichever audience – it is delivered.
A dherence A ction A genda: Development Process NCPIE surveyed key stakeholders to determine and validate A 3 focus areas Facilitator-led: –stakeholder discussion –decision-making process –consensus development during multiple Project Advisory Team meetings
Identification of Adherence Focus Areas Chronic conditions & co-morbidities: where we know taking meds safely and appropriately will make a difference in outcomes; Patient-related factors; Provider-related factors.
Identification of “Macro” Factors Current drivers impacting or reshaping medical care configuration, access, delivery, payment: Practice patterns and configurations Policy change efforts Payment / Incentives Pharma innovation – including packaging Technology innovations & adoption Health Literacy
Priorities of Adherence Action Structure Zeroed in on persons with the two most common, or with three most common, chronic conditions. Also considered how adherence challenges may differ for persons with just one chronic condition, versus those with several; and if multiple prescribers are involved. Patients’ Medicine Journey encompasses many similarities / many differences depending on life stage: –Older adults with multiple chronic conditions –Aging boomers with family caregiving responsibilities –Working age adults (who also manage meds in the home) –Retirees –Youth
A Window into High-need Patients Patient Factors, such as: –Low health literacy –Misunderstanding/ need for educational interventions –Economic challenges, esp. inability to pay for needed meds –Cultural beliefs that might affect adherence –Depression or other behavioral changes –Transportation, other challenges to accessing med- related services?
