Living Well Toolkit
The Living Well Toolkit Project, funded by the Health Research Council of New Zealand, is a project designed to help clinicians and clients living with long term neurological conditions to better work together across the whole continuum of care. It builds on 10 years of findings from our (and others') research and acknowledges what people with long term conditions have repeatedly told us: that if we are to get the best impact with the services we have to offer, we need to think a little differently, to be more person-centred in our approach, and to be mindful of their ongoing journey.
The pilot study is now completed and feedback on the Toolkit has been incorporated into its design as it moves into the implementation phase. The Toolkit is designed to help bring the client / patient to the fore during any interactions with their clinicians. The Toolkit is owned and completed by the client, and used as they see fit. Alongside this is a Clinician Resource which can be downloaded here. Suzie Mudge, the study lead, describes this and the Toolkit in the short videos below.
