Powerful patient education available free online for people suffering with urinary issues (overactive bladder).
Hillsborough, NC, October 25, 2016 (Newswire.com) - ProPatient, a provider of interactive online patient education tools is teaming up with leading accredited medical education provider, the Academy for Continued Healthcare Learning (ACHL), to develop a unique and interactive online resource to support and inform people dealing with Overactive Bladder (OAB).
OAB is a collection of urinary issues that affects millions of Americans. It can have a profound impact on people’s daily lives by interrupting their sleep and making travel, work, and social gatherings a challenge. “People often struggle with OAB silently. We want them to realize that there are treatments for this condition and that they can get help,” writes David Hadden, ProPatient’s Co-Founder and Chief Game Changer. “This program creates a highly interactive experience for patients. It’s like a simulated conversation with a virtual doctor. Actual doctor visits are rarely long enough to get all our questions answered, so this program can help fill in the gaps.”
ACHL is a leading innovator in providing relevant education to enhance healthcare delivery and patient outcomes. In partnership with ProPatient, they are expanding their current offerings of online simulations to their portfolio of educational programs to include patients.
The program is entitled, "Learning More About Overactive Bladder: Working With Your Care Team Toward a Common Goal." The module explores signs and symptoms, tests, and various treatments including behavioral therapy and available medications. It also includes strategies to manage potential side effects and best practices for communicating with one's healthcare provider.
ProPatient is a patient-focused, online educational platform that utilizes interactive video and engaging simulation to provide patients with the opportunity to ask questions of a virtual clinician and role-play different scenarios to improve their skills. The ProPatient mobile app is the companion app for your doctor visit, reminding you of the questions you should be asking during your doctor visit and providing checklists of items to consider in the event of a health condition or crisis. You are the CEO of your own health. You need to take Charge. We can help.
