The Prevention in Hand (PiH) website has an attractive new interface that is also highly functional and easy to navigate. With generous support from Scotiabank and the Foundation for Advancing Family Medicine (FAFM), the Prevention in Hand website and mobile app were updated in 2017.
Prevention in Hand website has garnered an impressive 61,000 active users, 656 cross-links from 53 different websites since it was launched in 2015.
Health care professionals can access the information individually or with their patients to review current chronic disease information, professional guidelines, e-Learning modules, online assessments, and wellness and healthy lifestyle management tools.
Family doctors who complete the eLearning modules can earn Mainpro+® credits.
In this past year, we added doctor-reviewed content on five new chronic disease topics (Chronic Pain, Insomnia, Osteoporosis, Concussion, and Thyroid Disease) for practitioners and patients and launched 4 certified e-learning modules, which over 21,000 people have accessed the modules.
