Perhaps some of the primary care training tools could also be shared with kinship and non kinship family members of the patients with severe mental disorders as well as with primary care workers.
Kinship and non kinship families are also involved in "the management" of patients with severe mental disorders as well as of patients with severe learning difficulties. As with shared and voproduced records the care would be "delegated but not abdicated" and a shared digital record with entries from families - and patients - would be helpful.
