Project InS:PIRE – Inspiring Better Outcomes
People Powered Health and Wellbeing, along with other colleagues from the ALLIANCE have been providing support to an exciting new programme at Glasgow Royal Infirmary. InS:PIRE (Intensive Care Syndrome: Promoting Independence and Return to Employment) – involves a person centred five-week rehabilitation and support programme for intensive care unit survivors and their families. InS:PIRE has received funding from the Health Foundation to run the programme for six cycles.
The sessions support people who have previously had a prolonged stay in intensive care to gain greater control over their health and wellbeing, as well as improve access to community resources. The sessions include elements of physiotherapy, psychology, pharmacy support, community signposting and peer support.
This short film, ‘Inspiring Better Outcomes’ explains how PPHW has supported the project team to adopt a Personal Outcomes approach and how the team have also worked with colleagues from ALISS and Glasgow Council for the Voluntary Sector (GCVS) to link participants to resources to enhance their recovery and keep them well.
In the film, we talk to Joanne McPeake and Malcolm Daniel from the InS:PIRE team, a participant from the first cohort, two family carers and Gillian McCamley from GCVS.
