Uses of SPICT
We have a medical calculator app, and we wish to add the SPICT tool to so our clinicians have improved access.
HealthPathways is an online primary care resource used by more than 17 health regions across New Zealand and Australia. The pathways provide assessment, management, and referral information specific to each region for general practice teams and other community healthcare providers.
Pathways are developed by work groups consisting of general practitioners, hospital clinicians, and other health professionals. Each region has over 540 clinical pathways, as well as clinical resources and patient information, facilitating consistency in the management of common conditions across general practice and the hospital system.
Access to HealthPathways is restricted to health professionals responsible for referring to specialty services.
