Storytelling

We are passionate advocates of patient storytelling as an evidence-based practise that delivers positive health outcomes, more effective conversations, and enhanced working relationships.

For patients, first-hand stories complement medical knowledge and improve understanding, boosting confidence and motivation to proactively self-manage their health.
For health professionals, patient storytelling provides new perspectives and insight and supports a healthcare system focused on person centred care and shared decision making.

 

‘Our lives are ceaselessly intertwined with narrative, with the stories that we tell and hear told, with the stories that we dream or imagine or would like to tell. All these stories are reworked in that story of our own lives, which we narrate to ourselves in an episodic, sometimes semiconscious, virtually uninterrupted monologue. We live immersed in narrative, recounting and reassessing the meaning of our past actions, anticipating the outcomes of our future projects, situating ourselves at the intersection of several stories not yet completed.’

     Donald Polkinghorne, Narrative Knowing and the Human Sciences, 1988

GoShareLogo

GoShare Healthcare is a customisable content distribution platform, which enables the efficient and measurable sharing of health resources, tailored to the needs of individual patients and carers.

Health professionals, HR managers and health promotion professionals can share a variety of information, including patient storytelling videos, fact sheets, explanatory animations, and links to relevant web pages. And health consumers receive an engaging content bundle that effectively communicates information specifically relevant to them, exactly when they need it.
This valuable information empowers and motivates consumers to overcome the self-management challenges that a health condition presents. Consequently, GoShare Healthcare is a flexible tool that can support disease management programs, hospital readmission prevention programs, corporate health and well being programs, and the provision of information to patients by nurses at the bed, in a primary care setting, or in the community.

 


 

Content Licensing

RealTime Health has developed the Australasian region’s most trusted and extensive digital library of patient stories. It is an online repository of over 800 video clips on more than 100 health topics.

Patient storytelling is an evidence-based practise, which is rapidly gaining recognition around the world for its benefits for patients, carers, health professionals and medical or nursing students. It complements medical knowledge to provide a holistic understanding of what is it is to live with, and manage, a health condition on a day-to-day basis.
Patients and their loved ones gain confidence and motivation to proactively self-manage, and health professionals gain new perspectives and insight as we move toward a healthcare system focused on person centred care. Licensing the RealTime Health online resource or individual video clips will help your organisation bring depth and engagement to health education or disease management programs.
