Ingrid Brindle, the Chair of Haughton Thornley Patient Participation Group and Dr Amir Hannan, a full-time General Practitioner (family physician) at Haughton Thornley Medical Centres presented #Empowerlution.
This is a very practical session about patient engagement and how we have tackled things in the practice. They look at barriers to patient engagement and some of the enablers and how we can move forwards. You will learn about Margaret Rickson . Here is a link to the Test Patient so that you can have a go and view a medical record. (You can also download the free app to try it out on your smartphone if you like).
Here is our explicit consent process for helping patients to sign up including an important questionnaire patients have to complete before they are given access to their records – it’s all part of understanding what this all means. You can see the latest information on how many people have signed up.
Here is a case study which shows how we achieved what we have done – improving records access and understanding. Watch the talk above to find out what #empowerlution means!
