Method - service design
In this pilot project, we want to base the services that obesity patients meet; from being caught by the system, until they are back home again and in charge of their own health situation and changing lifestyles. The main focus of the pilot project is what the occupational health service offers obesity patients, but GPs will be included through needs assessment and developing ideas, to ensure comprehensive solutions for both patient and healthcare professionals.
The solution - a service that helps patients to help themselves
The aim of the project is to further develop the existing services so that the patient is better able to cope with their situation, from the need for help arises, through a treatment program at the specialist health services, and in the aftermath of this. Solutions may include physical products as information materials, new ways to interact with the health service in advance, during or after processing, or change in the organisation. The solutions will help strengthen the patients so that more master their health situation and their changing lifestyles.
