Together for short lives launches new digital platform for care documents.
Together for short lives has recently launched ' My Care Transfer resource', a bespoke digital platform for families looking after seriously ill children or young people. It is a user friendly system to which families can add important information about their child’s care which they would like to be communicated to healthcare professionals.
TFSL describe the documentation on their website:
"For families looking after seriously ill children, admission to hospital can be made more stressful when key information isn’t easily accessible. Healthcare professionals may be unfamiliar with the specificities of a child’s condition and won’t be aware of their individual care preferences. My Care Transfer provides a space where families can keep, view and share this information. Easily accessible on desktop, mobile phones and tablets, families can register and fill in a form, which generates a document they can update, print and send whenever they need to share their information with professionals.
Care transfer documents created on the platform can hold information on emergency care plans, personal care preferences, daily routines, allergies, and symptom management, so families always have important information at their fingertips.
The platform is the last in a series of resources generously supported by the Bupa UK Foundation, focusing on supporting seriously ill young people moving to adult services. While My Care Transfer can be used by families with a seriously ill child of any age, it will be particularly useful for those making the transition to adult services, ensuring no key information is lost when young people move between children’s and adult services."
My Care Transfer is now available on the Together for Short Lives website.
