LiverWELL

LiverWELL
developed by Hepatitis Victoria


RemindersSupport to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringTrackersInformation

Arabic / Chinese / English / Vietnamese

Cost: Free

App enabling people to assess if they are at risk of hepatitis and manage their liver health.

“Millions of Australians suffer from symptoms associated with liver disease with over 400,000 living with hepatitis B or hepatitis C.

Hepatitis Victoria introduces LiverWELL, a free interactive app that is a practical tool to help people optimise their liver health. There are many health apps around but they tend to be either for specialist clinicians or from those promoting a healthier diet.
LiverWELL has been informed and tested by people living with hepatitis. 

“People with hepatitis and liver disease need practical tools that remind them to take their medications, schedule their appointments, record their test results and keep their personal health notes all in one place,” said Dr Nicole Allard, a general practitioner and specialist in hepatitis B. “The beauty of LiverWELL is that everyone with a mobile phone now has this option within their grasp and I will be recommending the app to my patients,” she said. 

“Every week up to 6 Victorians die from viral hepatitis-related liver disease…and liver cancer is the fastest growing cancer in the country,” said Melanie Eagle, CEO of Hepatitis Victoria. “We need to tackle this health crisis head on,” she said. 

“World Hepatitis Day is one of a handful of world health days mandated by the World Health Organisation precisely because hepatitis is such a serious and deadly disease,” said Jill Hennessy, Minister for Health in the Victorian Government. “The Victorian Government is committed to eradicating viral hepatitis in our community by 2030 and to do this we need clever and creative approaches. I congratulate Hepatitis Victoria on producing such a useful tool for people living with hepatitis,” said Minister Hennessy. 

LiverWELL is now available for Android and Apple smartphones in English with the translation of main functions in Arabic, Chinese and Vietnamese.”

Talking Mats

App enabling adults and children with communication difficulties to express their views 

“The Talking Mats app can be used as an interactive tool to help a person express their opinions, choices, ideas and preferences. The app is specifically designed for people with communication difficulties to express their ideas on a wide range of topics through a structured discussion format.

…Talking Mats incorporate the use of pictures to facilitate discussions. A person can choose the pictures they would like to have available then sort them under a visual scale (e.g. yes/no/maybe).

…The app provides instructions and has a simple display with pictures that can be moved on the screen.

…The app is motivating in itself to use as a person is able to choose between a range of symbols to communicate their preferences to another person. A person can move symbols on the screen to reflect their thoughts and preferences. The app does not produce any sounds and is designed to use interactively during conversations.

…A person can import their own pictures to the Talking Mat, thereby making it more relevant to their day to day living activities.

The app can provide a visual framework to guide conversations and may be used to:

  • get to know a person better
  • help a person express their preferences and feelings
  • help a person process information and organise their thoughts
  • support a person to understand information about key decisions
  • help with goal setting and planning
  • help a person express their preferences
  • structure and facilitate a conversation.

Many people with Autism are visual learners, therefore presenting information in an interactive, visual form may appeal to many people and support a person to express themselves.”
