People whose health is declining from one or more health problems often miss out on well planned care and support because they are not identified and offered the right help soon enough. SPICT-4ALL aims to make it easier for everyone to recognise and talk about signs that a person’s overall health may be declining so that those people and their carers get better coordinated care and support whether they are at home, living in a care home or in hospital. Health Professionals see the original SPICT on this website.
In this powerful film, a patient, Chris talks about his experiences of living with COPD. He talks about how he uses oxygen to manage his condition and we see him attending a local exercise class. Chris also talks about the support he gets from health care professionals including a respiratory physiotherapist.
