Complex Chronic Disease Clinic in the BC Women’s Hospital and Health Centre
Project Duration: August 15, 2013 until funds are spent
The complex chronic disease program focuses on disorders such as chronic disease syndrome, and the tick-borne Lyme disease. It combines treatment and care, through an integrative approach with clinical and research advisors and key patient advocacy groups. There is a strong research component. The research goal is to understand better the causes and then improve the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases. The program will reach out to patients in rural and remote areas through telehealth technology. Overall this program should build and strengthen the cadre of health providers in BC to provide quality care for these patients through research, training and education.
