Mobile modules are modules that are suitable for the web and the Minddistrict app (read more about the difference between modules and mobile modules).
Mobile modules are online interventions that you, as a therapist, can use as a support tool or as an addition to an existing treatment. These modules are developed in collaboration with experts and clients. They contain explanations, videos and illustrations, exercises, and examples. As a therapist, you can give feedback on your client's exercises.
In the catalogue within your platform, you can see which mobile modules are available to you. Simply filter the catalogue by 'mobile modules'.
How do you start a mobile module?
1. Search the catalogue for the desired mobile module and click on 'Assign'.
2. Select the desired client.
3. Choose if you would like to add the module to an existing module list or if you would like to start a new module list (for more information about this subject see 'Module list' below in the article).
4. Set whether you want to accompany the mobile module with or without feedback. Ready!
Guiding a mobile module
As a therapist, you can accompany the mobile module. You open a mobile module as follows:
- Go to your client's file
- In the left menu, go to 'Modules'
- Open the mobile module you want to view. You'll see this:
In the left column, you'll see the chapters of the mobile module. In the blue column, you'll see the sub-steps of the chapters. By clicking on these sub-steps, you will see the content as the client gets to see it.
Customize a mobile module
You can customize a mobile module for the client. You can prevent certain chapters from being displayed for the client. You can do this, for example, if parts of the module are not relevant to the treatment, or to make the module shorter for the client. You can do this by using the slider.
Mobile modules that you give feedback on contain 'feedback moments'. Once the client has arrived at such a feedback moment, you will be given a task to give feedback on the exercises. The feedback you send is a kind of conversation. Clients can therefore respond to your feedback.
A module list is two or more modules that can be placed one after the other. This allows the client to walk a certain route through different modules. The modules are then not offered separately, but the client can only start with the next module once the first modules have been completed. This allows the client to focus on a specific topic of treatment.
When multiple modules are placed in a sequence, the client will only see the first module on his or her home page.
If you want to offer multiple modules separately to the client, you can start a new module list. The client can work on several modules at the same time.
You can find the settings of a mobile module when you click on the gear wheel. These are the possibilities:
- Change the title of the module list;
- Turn feedback on or off;
- Change the guiding professional;
- Remove a module list.
Note: Removing a mobile module is only possible if the client has not yet started the module. As soon as a client opens the module, the module is logged in the client's file.
You can also delete an unstarted module list by clicking on the trash can icon.
MDS questionnaires in the Long-Term conditions modules (LTC)
It's important that you can monitor how your clients are doing during your treatment. That's why every week your clients receive a reminder to fill out questionnaires to monitor their mental health. You can discuss the results with your client and see the progress in the treatment.
Note: It's not possible for the client to fill in the questionnaire with the Minddistrict app! Clients can find the questionnaires when they go to their home screen and they can fill them out on a laptop or computer.
Once a client has read the instructions in the mobile module, a ROM questionnaire (monitoring) is triggered. The client will receive an email and a task that a monitoring entry is available. The therapist will receive an email that the monitoring is available for the client as well.
The client can fill out the questionnaires. Once the questionnaires are submitted, the therapist will receive an email that the client has complete the questionnaires. You can view them in the platform. The next questionnaires will be triggered a week later.
If the client has not completed the measurement 2 weeks after the activation date, you as a therapist will receive an e-mail. The link in this e-mail allows you to specify the 'reason for non-response'. Choose the reason that is most likely.
