Abstract

Introduction

The House of Care framework provides a visual model of a house built around collaborative care planning conversations. This enables people with long term conditions and their clinicians to work together to determine the shape and the support needed to enable them to live well in their communities. 

The House of Care programme has been widely applied in primary care in Scotland and is befitting of the country’s ambition for personalised, Realistic Medicine within an integrated, health, social and community landscape.

The house metaphor describes the components needed to make coordinated, personalised care planning a reality.

The foundation of the house, the informal and formal sources of care support available in the community - “More than Medicine” is a key element of this model.
