Care Story Library
Care Story Library is a YouTube-style portal of patient care stories from across Scotland. Funded by the NHS National Services Scotland and the Scottish Government, the site aims to convey real-life experiences told first-hand by carers, service users and staff Scotland-wide. From elderly dementia patients to district nurses, Care Story Library gives a voice to those who may otherwise remain unheard.
The project brief was to transform the existing static site to a dynamic and interactive one which allows streaming and downloading of videos in Flash and Windows Media formats. There is an admin back-end for site administrators to upload new stories and an advanced search function for users to quickly find stories of interest.
Please note the site is currently members-only as it is primarily and educational resource for NHS staff across Scotland although it is intended to be made publicly available following initial user feedback.
