Resources for clinics and healthcare workers
Healthcare teams can use the app in collaboration with patients as a self-management tool to improve their liver health, help them navigate the steps involved in ongoing care, and stay engaged with their healthcare professionals.
Resources are available for healthcare teams to increase awareness of availability of the new LiverWELL App and to help support your patients to use the app.
For people living with viral hepatitis or other liver conditions, understanding and managing their healthcare can be challenging. Finding appropriate resources and information to support self-management can also be difficult.
Tools such as the LiverWELL app can really help people keep track of their health care, get advice and information, and assist them to stay in control and stay healthy.
