UPDATE! Northern Gulf Island - Gold River MHSU Shared Care Project

The Northern Gulf Islands - Gold River MHSU Shared Care project was initiated in 2017 with a goal of re-aligning delivery of rural MHSU care in partnership between the Campbell River, Comox Valley, and Rural & Remote Divisions of Family Practice.

As one part of this project, a team of clinicians piloted a shared MHSU care model using telehealth in Gold River and Tahsis whereby a patient was able to have a psychiatric consultation with a psychiatrist, MHSU clinician, and family physician. This technology-enabled wrap-around care enables the patient see a team working together for their health, better supports team members who might be working in isolation, and provides professional development opportunity for the team.

Enhancing Perinatal Care in the Comox Valley

Through Shared Care’s Partners in Care initiative, the Comox Valley Division is collaborating with Perinatal Services BC on an extensive project to assess maternity care needs in our area and has created solutions to address some of the gaps.
