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?
- 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 and 3 part-time pediatricians who have expertise and interest in complex care and/or palliative care. We provide Monday-Friday inpatient consults and week-day outpatient care. We also have two part-time booking clerks who provide appointment coordination.
