      • Persistent Pain : Fibromyalgia
      • Persistent Pain : Pain Management Programme
    • Within Therapies are three teams
      • Prostate Cancer Prehab to Rehab – which will use the consultation feature to identify areas in which patients need support to allow the team to provide best care.
      • Occupational Therapy Rheumatology – which will use library resources to support patients.
      • Orthopaedic Prehab to Rehab – which will use the care plan feature to provide an 8 week prehabillitation programme to patients awaiting hip or knee replacements.

    • Neurology – Neuro Rehabilitation NPT – Patients use the consultation feature to answer questions about their current treatment plan – benefits, outcomes, adherence – which allows clinicians to prescribe or amend new courses of treatment.
    • Neurology Morriston – Headache Service – the new Neurology (Headache Service) team in Swansea will be using a care plan to monitor patients’ headaches over a monthly period in order to prescribe them a new course of treatment without the need for face to face appointments.

Along with the UK Kidney Association (UKKA) we are continuing to roll out PKB to renal units across the country to provide renal patients with a more secure and improved functionality platform giving patients more data and more tools to manage their condition.  Read more about it here.
