Medical Observer Article on HelpDomain
GPs now have a new online resource to help them answer questions on some of the non-medical practicalities faced by patients with terminal and chronic conditions.
Established by PushPull Medical, the new website – helpdomain.com.au – draws on the knowledge of experts across a range of fields such as finance and law, and offers advice on the many issues and decisions that patients with serious health problems will face.
The website contains information on everything from superannuation and power of attorney, to financial planning and potential support groups. It also has video recordings of experts giving advice – including a GP – as well as recordings of real-life patients sharing their experiences.
GPs can refer patients to the website, or use it to better inform themselves of the issues so they are able to answer any patient questions more appropriately.
