Experimental: Intervention group
Participants will receive an Anticipatory Care Plan
Other: Anticipatory Care Plan group
The Anticipatory Care Plan will be delivered by a trained nurse. At the initial visit, the nurse will conduct a hollistic assessment using the EasyCare Assessment Tool. Following this visit, the nurse will draft a strucutred summary report of the home visit to include patient goals, preferences for care, identified problems and action list. The nurse will then consult with a pharmacist to identify any potential inappropriate prescribing. The nurse will then meet with the participants GP and review and provide feedback. The nurse will then re visit participants and discuss the report and agree a support plan and actions for follow up.
No Intervention: Control group
- EQ-5D-5L [ Time Frame: 10 minutes ]Is a widely used self-reported generic measure of health reported quality of life that has been validated in different patient populations. The five-level version contains the same dimensions as the earlier three-level version but has been designed to provide greater reliability and sensitivity.
- Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale (CES-D) [ Time Frame: 10 minutes ]This 20- item scale has been used extensively with older adults. Respondents use a four choice scale to rate how they have felt in the past week expressing depressed mood.
- Patient Assessment of Chronic Illness Care (PACIC) Scale [ Time Frame: 15 minutes ]This 20 item scale was designed to assess from the patient perspective the receipt of patient-centered care and self-management behaviors.
- Health Economic Evaluation [ Time Frame: 15 minutes ]The health economic analysis will consist of trial-based economic evaluation and will incorporate both cost effectiveness analysis and cost utility analysis to compare the alternative treatment strategies: (1) the Anticipatory Care Planning (ACP) Intervention; and (2) usual care in general practice.
