Following on from the successful Shingles Recall Pilot Program Country SA PHN has been invited to participate in the Healthily GoShare Diabetes Self-Management Education and Patient Recall Program for General Practice.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, GP Practices had limited opportunity to provide health assessments and support to their patients with diabetes. This has increased the risk of diabetes complications in this patient group and highlights the need for intervention strategies to support them.
The Diabetes Self-Management Education and Patient Recall Program for General Practice campaign provides Practices with access to GoShare Plus; an innovative health promotion tool that is integrated with CAT4 (PENCAT). GoShare Plus enables Practices to send patients a series of 3 or 4 content bundles sent by SMS over 4 weeks. Each SMS includes an embedded link to subject matter expert-approved resources. An optional 4th SMS message will recall patients for a GPMP/TCA or diabetes cycle of care appointment.
The information is designed to improve patients’ health literacy and reduce their risk of diabetes complications. Topics cover diabetic eye disease, foot care, dietary advice, and access to resources such as the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS).
