Kupe from the Medtech tool bar

Kupe is freely available on the web and we would also like to make it available for general practitioners and practice nurses to use directly from the Medtech tool bar. To do this, a Prostate Icon will need to be installed on your Medtech tool bar. This icon will provide direct access to the decision support tool and we hope it will make it easier for general practitioners and practice nurses to make use of the tool during their consultations.

Kupe can help general practitioners and practice nurses to help men decide if a prostate check is right for them.

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men, but it affects men differently. Finding it early can save lives, but not all prostate cancer needs to be treated. Because of this, men need to understand the downstream risks and benefits of treatment before having a prostate cancer check so that they can make an informed decision.

However, discussing the pros and cons of prostate cancer testing within a consultation can be challenging.

Bpacnz, Homecare Medical and the Ministry of Health launched www.kupe.net.nz a website aimed at helping men decide if a prostate check is right for them.

Kupe.net.nz is designed to help general practitioners and practice nurses discuss the benefits, risks and implications of testing for prostate cancer with patients. The tool provides information on the pros and cons of testing and guides men through a brief decision process designed to help them decide whether getting a prostate check is right for them.

Kupe.net.nz is freely available on the web and we would also like to make it available to use directly from your Medtech tool bar. To do this, a Kupe Prostate Icon will need to be installed. This icon will provide direct access to the decision support tool.

Medtech have created an official Prostate Decision Support Tool icon and an installation wizard. This icon does not interact with your PMS, it is simply a shortcut to the decision support tool.

If you are running Medtech you can add a Kupe icon to the Medtech tool bar and access Kupe directly from within Medtech.
