NHS Education for Scotland provides NHS Scotland health and social care staff with access to learning and practice support resources produced via its online e-learning platform TURAS. Recently, a number of workforce stories have been produced to share the experience and knowledge of NHS Scotland staff across four key areas: Home and Mobile Health Monitoring, Telecare, Video Enabled Health Care & Digital Services and Mobile Health and Wellbeing Applications.
We are excited to share with you that five of our Simple Shared Health Care community members have been featured in the Home and Mobile Health Monitoring section:
- Sharon Smith, Speech and Language Therapist – has developed Flo to engage with early years practitioners and staff, reinforcing key training messages about universal speech and language therapy to help them embed changes into their practice.
- Mairi Wotherspoon, Lead Dietician – has integrated Flo to provide an ongoing dialogue with patients to provide motivation and confidence to manage their weight, helping them to think about changing behaviours and achieve better health.
- Corinne Clark, Respiratory Clinical Nurse Specialist – has recruited Flo to her team to guide patients to improve their adherence with their Asthma Plan, including those most at-risk in remote and rural localities.
- Michelle Duffy, Community Respiratory Nurse Specialist– uses Flo to help support patients in NHS Highland with breathing difficulties, who may be at risk of needing unscheduled care.
- Fiona Martin, Diabetes Specialist Podiatrist – uses Florence to support patients with their footcare, and to encourage them to contact Podiatry services if they have a foot concern.
Each workforce story provides an personal insight into the commitment that our community members make to improving the quality of care delivered to their patients, such as fewer appointments, improved confidence and self-management, and improved clinical decision making.
