Title of Talk: Developing a digital eHub to improve caregiver access to and use of existing primary health, mental health, and social services
Speakers: This presentation will describe the complex journey to develop, implement and evaluate a digital navigation platform for families with children 0-12 years experiencing adversities. The audience will learn the information and service seeking behaviours and needs of families experiencing adversity and how these have informed the development of the Child and Family eHub. We will discuss the adaptation of the learnings from this project to other health issues, including how to integrate with healthcare delivery.
