Filled with ideas, tips and useful suggestions, this newsletter is available for anyone interested in keeping themselves and their families/whānau healthy. It's also ideal for people with ongoing health conditions who want to learn more about what they can do to keep themselves well.
The intended audience includes DHBs, PHOs, health providers, managers, academics, decision makers, researchers and students. Its purpose is to increase awareness, share knowledge, build connections and improve quality and system effectiveness in the field of long-term conditions.
Topics include improving chronic care, self-management support, quality improvement, e-health, health literacy, co-design and health management. They cover updates on latest reports, international, national, regional and local news/events, recommended resources, articles, training opportunities, conferences and viewable presentations.
With more than 300,000 consumer-focused health apps and thousands of tools and online programmes, it's impossible for individual clinicians or health providers to identify the best apps or digital tools. Yet studies show some of these apps can significantly improve outcomes and wellbeing for consumers.
Given this need and opportunity, the Health Navigator NZ team is leading a community initiative to independently review and help identify potentially useful apps to share with patients and clients. Read more about:
We send this newsletter to communication teams for DHBs and PHOs, plus others we know are interested in this area. Please let us know if there's someone more suited to be the point of contact for your organisation. They can sign up here.
We also look forward to hearing from you with suggestions and comments.
