A Futures Literacy application to a major healthcare project is described. Funded under the EU FP7 framework, the 'Man-aged Outcomes' project modelled resource usage across four different medical conditions and linked this with patient health outcomes. A Futures Literacy approach was undertaken to explore scenarios for future care provision in 18 workshops, and five languages. Facilitator training, workshop preparation, delivery and outcomes are described. The process provided a consistent framework for generating relevant outputs from local care professionals and indicated potential operational process developments to improve patient outcomes.
