E-tool for online interactive assessment of young people’s wellbeing
The E-tools project is an implementation study in the general practice setting that focuses on electronic health risk screening for young people attending primary care. It seeks to provide a therapeutically engaging online platform for young people to communicate their health risks, strengths and concerns to GPs and other primary care providers in a time efficient, effective and systematic way.
Such technology has been found in earlier pilots to increase reporting of health risks, trust in the provider and confidence that concerns will be kept confidential.
