Complex chronic diseases clinic opens in Canadian hospital
Saturday 5 October 2013
From British Columbia's Global News:
Complex Chronic Diseases Clinic opens at BC Women’s Hospital
The Complex Chronic Disease Clinic is now open at BC Women’s Hospital. It is designed specifically for patients suffering from diseases such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and Lyme disease.
Patients will require a physician’s referral to be considered for admission into the program. Referral forms may be accessed by calling the program (telephone: 604.875.2061 fax: 604.875.3738).
After a patient has been referred, their needs will be further assessed by program staff, through the use of a triage process. The triage criteria have been created with input from patient advocacy groups and a medical ethicist to ensure a fair process that prioritizes patients appropriately.
Once a date and time has been determined for a qualifying patient, the CCDP will then contact the referring physician with the information.
