It has always been our goal to provide personalised patient information as much as possible, rather than just handing out a condition booklet. We have discovered that not every patient will find their condition booklet beneficial by itself and will often choose two or three additional booklets or factsheets to complement the information. In response to this, and encouraged by members of our Advisory Group, we designed and created new patient information folders so patients can keep all the relevent information, whether booklets or factsheets, in one place.
The folders have space for 1-2 of the larger booklets, for example a condition booklet and a patient diary, and additional space for the thinner 'living with' booklets or printed factsheets. There's also a slot for a business card, so patients can keep their CNS details close to hand.
The folders are available for patients and healthcare professionals to order on our website now (they're towards the bottom of the list).
What do you think of these folders? Do you think you and your patients will find them useful?
