Cancer and Health Professionals: required project management
Cancer and Healthcare Professionals: the required project management is complex. Good patient outcomes are achieved when project management is highly coordinated. We will work together for the benefit of our client with a cancer diagnosis. Our approach is to provide tailored patient-driven support for our clients.
If a client engages us to support them during consultations, we will let you know with as much advance notice. We will attend by telephone, secure video link or face-to-face depending on the context. The majority of the time it will be by telephone.
Secure audio records of our meetings are kept in the client’s file here at Health Equals Freedom, which can be provided securely on request for your medical records.
Many patients do not have trusted family members or friends to assist them and you may not be able to provide the level of advocacy they need due to time and system pressures, we can help fill this gap.
We project manage and streamline the processes for clients with cancer. Coordination of care between the GP and their multi-disciplinary team particularly for complex cancer cases. This is particularly of benefit to patient’s, families and care givers in distant locations.
Research has shown that patients report, question prompt lists and audio recordings, assist in providing support to remember and understand medical information, Hyatt A., et al., 2018.
Here at Health Equals Freedom we use integrated secure practice management software located in Australia, our software is most likely to integrate securely with yours and we can discuss the specific details once we are retained.
