Life Effects: Online Support for Chronic Patients
Living with one or more chronic conditions affects a person’s life in many different ways. And the only people who really understand what it’s like are those who have faced the same challenges for years.
With this in mind Teva collaborated with over 50 patients to create Life Effects, an online resource shaped by patients, for patients. The platform consists of articles, videos and podcasts that focus on the impact a chronic condition has on a patient’s life and offers information, insight and inspiration on how to manage this reality.
Ranging from the emotional to the practical and everything in between, Life Effects offers a central resource that combines the patient experience with strict medical validation and expert editorial curation for patients to find advice, support and community.
Therapy areas covered by the website include migraine, cancer, asthma, COPD, anxiety, depression, Huntington’s disease, fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis, as well as a dedicated section supporting caregivers of people with chronic conditions.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Life Effects has also become a vital source of guidance and support for patients in the UK, allowing them to connect with people in similar situations as they navigated the ‘new normal’. With many chronic patients and caregivers struggling to access healthcare during the COVID-19 pandemic, Life Effects collated insights from patients who share their often moving and highly personal stories of how they navigated the healthcare system during the lockdown.
Whether it’s for you, your patients, or your colleagues, Life Effects holds a range of benefits for your pharmacy and can give you a better understanding of the challenges your patients face.
