Past Projects & Initiatives

 

Northern Gulf Islands & Gold River Mental Health & Substance Use (MHSU) Project

The Northern Gulf Islands & Gold River Mental Health and Substance Use (MHSU) Project was a funded Shared Care initiative.  The goal was to address barriers to access and to enhance MHSU care provided in the rural communities of Hornby, Denman, Quadra and Cortes Islands, and the village of Gold River.  The project used a team-based care approach to provide timely support for patients experiencing MHSU issues in the five identified rural and remote communities. 

With the use of telehealth, a patient was able to have a psychiatric consultation with a psychiatrist, MHSU clinician and GP.  In some instances, the patient would be in Gold River with the MHSU clinician while the GP would be in Tahsis and the psychiatrist was in Campbell River.  This technology-enabled wrap-around care helps make the patient see that a team is working together for their health, better supports team members who are often working in isolation and provides a professional development opportunity for the team.
