When should I worry?
Welcome to the weekly showcase of Technology-enhanced primary & learning resources from eGPlearning.
When should I worry? This is a common question for parents when looking after an unwell child. In primary care, this can often be a challenge for clinicians to manage due to parental anxiety, the expectation of treatments like antibiotics, concerns about antibiotic resistance and growing demand.
A helpful resource which can be used with and for patients is the When should I worry booklet found at www.whenshouldiworry.com.
This short booklet provides clear and helpful advice on managing common conditions that can be self-managed by parents, with advice on self-care options, symptom management and importantly clear guidance on when to see further advice.
The website even offers training on how to use the booklet effectively, and it is available in a variety of languages. Taking it one step further, you may choose to send parents the weblink for the booklet and for the English version: use this helpful case-sensitive shortlink: bit.ly/eGPlearningWSIW
For proactive practices, you could send this as a public information message to all registered parents or share via practice social media channels.
