G Cloud 13 framework
Material is available to license by single condition or as a complete package.
Each library is broken up into accessible and easy-to-understand sections so that patients and their families can absorb the information at their own pace, in their own time, in their own home.
All films feature practical advice from leading national and international experts as well as patients living well with their condition.
"The quality of the product is, in my experience, unmatched anywhere in the world."
Charles Alessi - Senior Adviser, Public Health England
“ The Sound Doctor course on living well with COPD is to be recommended to people with the condition. It provides factual information and management advice provided by health care experts including those with COPD. The video format and the separate modules allow people to take the course at their own pace and repeat sections where necessary in the comfort of their own home. This should find a place as an adjunct to a formal pulmonary rehabilitation programme.”
Prof Mike Morgan, Respiratory National Clinical Lead, Vice President of the British Lung Foundation
