Streamlining Essential Health Services and Pandemic Information

April 27th, 2020

The community had an existing Communicable Disease Emergencies Preparedness Plan (formerly the Pandemic Influenza Plan) which provided guidance on implementing this practice. Existing staff and resources were re-aligned as necessary to make remote access available. The community has efficient access to the wellness services they need and are able to access information and how-to videos on the website. As not all households have access to internet, the regular telephone wellness check-ins connect these members with the health centre and help get information and health resources to every household.
