New possibilities in crisis care
Several qualitative research studies have established that both vulnerable young people and care workers experience the apps in the CoWin media wall as a constructive tool. They create new possibilities for vulnerable people in crisis. Not only that, but the apps offer the care workers new options in tense and escalating situations. The CoWin media wall allows them to communicate and share information without creating unsafe situations. It is possible to constantly anticipate the situation of the person undergoing treatment and where necessary, intervene as a prevention. This tool also positively influences the duration and quality of care during a possible confinement.
Even in the most severe phase of their crisis, the person undergoing treatment can retain self-management with the help of the CoWin media wall. Supported by the care worker, they are given appropriate access to their own solutions in the form of personalised apps. The care worker can make the apps accessible to vulnerable people in crisis during a period of isolation; this might involve giving access to photos, videos and music, or offering the person undergoing treatment contact with the home front by way of a video call. The tool can also offer a diversion in the form of relaxation themes, drawing, games or television.
