[Patient education and regional healthcare requirements].


In the Pays de la Loire, only 3% of patients suffering from a long-term condition have access to a therapeutic education programme (TEP), mainly implemented in hospitals. A campaign is underway to promote the development of therapeutic education programmes on a regional level, notably by raising awareness of its benefits and coordinating the offer in cooperation with primary care workers and those working in the social sector. The aim is to improve patients' quality of life and to reduce repeated hospitalisations by providing "keys" for the preservation of patients' health status.
