This program is currently under development. Please contact your family physician or pharmacist if you would like to obtain information about potential medication side-effects and symptom management advice related to disease conditions.
Our Symptom Coaching service is currently under development with the goal of supporting you, your pharmacist and your family physician to reduce the burden of complex symptoms. This future program will be available by referral only.
Extensive evidence has documented how nurse-led symptom management services can improve complex health conditions (e.g. advanced COPD and heart failure), primarily by:
- Improving health-related quality of life
- Ensuring treatment benefits outweigh harms
- Empowering people to “work around” disease
