The Northern Gulf Island - Gold River MHSU  

The Northern Gulf Islands - Gold River MHSU Shared Care project has been underway since 2017 with a goal of re-aligning delivery of rural MHSU care and 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 (family physician, psychiatrist and MHSU clinician) piloted a shared MHSU care model using telehealth in Gold River and Tahsis. With the use of telehealth, a patient was able to have a psychiatric consultation with a psychiatrist, MHSU clinician and GP. In some instances, the patient would be in Gold River with the MHSU clinician while the GP would be in Tahsis and the psychiatrist was in Campbell River. This technology-enabled wrap-around care helps make the patient see that a team is working together for their health, better supports team members who are often working in isolation and provides a professional development opportunity for the team.
