GoShare is an exciting digital patient education platform that enables health practitioners to share customised health and wellness information with patients via email or SMS.
GoShare supports health practitioners, including practice nurses and allied health professionals, to educate and empower their patients to play a more active role in their healthcare. The evidence-based information and resources complement face-to-face interactions and are designed to build the knowledge, skills and confidence of patients, particularly in relation to the self-management of chronic conditions.
GoShare’s educational content comes in a variety of formats (videos, fact sheets from peak bodies, animations or useful apps) and includes over 800 patient and carer experiences across a broad range of chronic illness and wellness topics developed in partnership with Australia’s leading peak bodies. The patient storytelling videos are evidence based, approved by health experts, and are effective in building patient engagement, understanding and confidence.
See this short introductory video explaining GoShare.
Access to GoShare
GoShare has been rolled out across western Victoria thanks to a new partnership between the developers of GoShare, Healthily, and Western Victoria Primary Health Network. Access is now available to general practitioners, primary health care nurses and health and allied health practitioners within general practice. Further licences may be released in 2018 to include other health professionals.
If you are working within general practice and would like to know more information or gain access to GoShare please contact your Primary Care Consultant or email Sophie Bond.
Navigating GoShare is easy and intuitive. There are instructional videos and a User Guide below to assist. Your Primary Care Consultant at Western Victoria PHN has also been trained in GoShare or you can email or call Healthily directly on 03 9534 7222 for support.
