Information Prescription Service (IPS)

Description:

People affected by long-term conditions need information that is timely and relevant, enabling them to make decisions about their care and treatment and to live with their condition.
 
The Information Prescriptions System is a freely accessible tool for providing quality information on 2000 conditions and treatments, at the right time, in the right amount and which is personalised, reliable, understandable and evidence-based.

In particular, the IP Cancer Information Pathways contain high-quality information relevant to specific cancers at key points in the care pathway, together with resources about such issues as financial and psychological support and including information about local services.
 
The IPS is an invaluable resource not only for patients and their families and carers, but also for professionals, in both assessing and meeting the individual information needs of patients and accessing an invaluable resource to support their own practice.
