The FlinCare™ software supports the Flinders Program™ by health professionals within your organisation and allows you to access all the tools necessary to use the program with a patient.
The most common responses by health professionals are that the Flinders Program™ adds structure to how they are already working with their clients with chronic disease and that it encourages the client to have ownership of the management process and their care plan.
These are comments from a range of health workers using the Flinders Program™ clinically:
“Challenged my assumptions about chronicity” -Mental health worker
“Made me focus on the client and goal setting that led to achievable outcomes” -Nurse
“It does require a commitment to do it as you need to set aside time” but “I feel we are working more as a team” –General Practitioner
“Allows patients to bring up [other] issues” –Health worker
“Relatively quick and simple system for care planning” -GP
“The process has changed my focus to what I don’t know about the patient rather than what I think I know” –General Practitioner
“It’s pretty in-your-face in that it challenges your own current practice. Such challenges are essential in health care” –Health Worker
