PAM Update April 2021
Sheffield have managed to secure PAM for the remainder of the year 2021. This will tide us over until the NHSE Framework comes out (hopefully at the end of April /beginning of May) and then we may be able to make plans from there – hopefully on a wider South Yorkshire perspective
Good news to carry on if you are currently using PAM or if you are planning to use PAM within your service.

Supported Self-Management and PAM : Updates and FAQs: February 2021
Following on from the letter dated 8 February from Judith Hendley, NHS England and NHS Improvement has now completed a set of FAQs which can be viewed on the Supported self-management (SSM) Futures NHS platform which provide further information around the plans for SSM.
NHSE /I recognise the huge effort that has been invested in embedding PAM® in organisations and services and tailoring support to meet individual needs. The natural ending of the current contract with Insignia Health has provided the opportunity to assess how NHSE/I continue to support systems and organisations to embed supported self-management.
Over the next year NHSE/I will continue to promote and accelerate interventions that contribute to self- management, including the roll out of Health and Wellbeing Coaches and Care Coordinators into primary care as part of the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme, peer support and self – management education. NHSE/I will strengthen the embedding of personalised care approaches by using a broader set of measures and outcomes supporting the asset based “what matters to you” coaching conversation; appropriate to individual’s needs and enabling a person to meet their appropriate relevant goals in order to supportively self-manage their health condition on a daily basis.
This year ahead is an exciting time for SSM and NHSE/I look forward to working with us all to continue to develop personalised care to support great outcomes for the people who use our services; through the skills development and subsequent mind-set and culture change for all within systems. NHSE/I are committed to ensuring that personalised approaches continue to influence and shape local service development.

February 2021 PAM Update from NHSE

- NHSE/I has provided licences to NHS organisations and partners to use the PAM through a contract with Insignia Health.
- This contract with Insignia Health comes to an end in April. This means that organisations that obtain their PAM licences via NHSE/I will not be able to use these licences after 14 April 2021.
- NHSE/I Intend to set up a framework of suppliers of measures, relevant to supported self-management and will be inviting relevant suppliers to apply to be on the quality-assured framework which it is hoped will be in place at end of quarter one of 2021/22 - this will be for use by organisations that wish to identify and contract with suppliers of appropriate measures. NHSE/I hope that Insignia Health will apply to be on the framework with the PAM.
- NHSE/I will provide more information on these developments in April 2021
- Whilst the tools and measures that we use to develop supported self-management approaches and help us to tailor and demonstrate change in behaviour / resource utilisation, may in the future be different than we use now , the personalisation approach remains the same .
- Activation as a concept – that mind set shift - believing that an individual has the ability to contribute to their care, understanding how an individual’s knowledge skills and confidence to self-manage may help tailor an approach , remains at the heart of how we work with people.
- These NHSE/I changes present a great opportunity to continue to embed personalised approaches by using a broader set of measures and outcomes supporting the asset based “What matters to you” coaching conversation , appropriate to an individual’s needs ,enabling a person to meet their appropriate relevant goals in order to supportively self-manage, with the knock on effect that they this may have on their outcomes as individuals and on the system as a whole .

- Patient Activation Measure - English - Following feedback, the PAM has been revised to feel more appropriate for a UK audience. ‘When all is said and done’, ‘follow through’ and ‘figure out’ have been replaced and as a result, there has been a reduction in the word count in five PAM statements. Please begin to use this new version in your work -the way in which the PAM is recorded and administered remains the same. Insignia will examine the data captured over the next three or so months to make sure the revisions maintain the strong PAM measurement properties seen in the UK with the previous version.
