The Complex Care program strives to ensure continuity and coordinated health care to children and youth with medical complexity (CYMC). The team aims to support families to access services and supports which improve health, well-being and quality of life.
Who are the members of the Complex Care Program? (Updated September 2021)
- The children and youth followed by Complex Care are those who demonstrate the most complex, chronic medical care needs.
- Our expertise is caring for children with genetic syndromes and neurologic impairment who have multiple subspecialists involved in their care each year, frequent hospitalizations, multiple medications and high intensity care needs, often dependent on technology.
- Our expertise is not caring for children with cancer, transplant, psychiatric and behavioural challenges.
- We accept referrals from physicians or nurse practitioners.
We have 1 part-time pediatric nurse practitioner, 1 full time pediatric nurse (key worker - 1 year trial 2021-2022), 1 part time pharmacist, and 5 part-time pediatricians who have expertise and interest in complex care, hospital medicine and/or palliative medicine. We provide inpatient consults and outpatient care during the weekdays. We also have one part time booking clerk who provide appointment coordination.
