24/7 Online Toolkit for Patients During COVID-19

PatientToolbox.org Makes COVID-19 Resources Convenient for Patients
 

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF) has added a new coronavirus information ‘drawer’ to its online, patient-centered initiative, Patient Toolbox (PatientToolbox.org).

Patient Toolbox was launched in October 2019 and has been assisting patients as they navigate the complex, difficult-to-understand situations and forms patients encounter when they go to a clinic or are admitted to a hospital. Now, CCHF’s Patient Toolbox is newly equipped to assist in guiding Americans through COVID-19 by providing critical information and news all in one place, such as:

 

·      Essential facts about COVID-19

·      Information on diagnosis, testing, medications and treatment options for COVID-19

·      Practical actions from recognized health experts that Americans can take to protect themselves

·      Individual rights during a declared emergency

·      Weekly “COVID-19 Update” video series featuring CCHF’s president

 

“These are troubling times for Americans,” said Twila Brase, president and co-founder of CCHF. “The information we know about COVID-19 changes by the hour. Americans may feel overwhelmed as they try to understand and deal with these difficult challenges and new realities. With so much information and news out there, it can be hard and time-consuming to find it all. We aim to help fix that by adding a new coronavirus ‘drawer’ to our resource-ready Patient Toolbox.”

Patient Toolbox’s other three ‘drawers’, At the ClinicIn the Hospital, and Having a Baby, provide patients with information needed to protect patient rights and privacy. This includes samples of modified consent forms, questions to ask physicians and other practitioners, and parental options related to newborn (genetic) screening and birth certificate completion.
