Cancer Care Alberta - Symptom Control & Palliative Care Telehealth Program


Description
Clinic for patients in rural communities in northern Alberta who have problems with pain or other symptoms from cancer and do not have access to specialists locally.

This clinic helps patients with the pain and other symptoms from cancer by providing support to physicians and nurse peactitioners caring for cancer patients living in rural communities in the northern half of Alberta (North and Central Zones)

High-definition televisions link the remote care centre to a multi-disciplinary team at the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton. The team can then assess the patient without the patient leaving his or her home community. The patient may still require travel to Edmonton during their care, but many parts of the care can be provided to the patient through Telehealth.
