Use of the Kootenay Boundary RACE advice line growing

In the first two-and-a-half months physicians placed 28 calls to specialists. With the addition of Chronic Pain and Dr. Joel Kailia, it is anticipated that the call volumes will continue to increase. Evaluations of RACE show that on average calls from specialists are returned to FPs within 6 minutes – a quick response for important clinical support. Specialists interested in participating in the phone advice line for local physicians during office hours please contact the project manager, Mona Mattei, at 250.443.1899 or mmattei@divisionsbc.ca.


Rapid Access to Consultative Expertise (RACE)
Launched July 1, 2014

Kootenay Boundary psychiatrists were the first to volunteer to staff the RACE advice line offering family physicians timely management advice during clinical hours to assist in patient care planning. Kootenay Boundary RACE will grow over the next few months to include other interested specialist teams. The KB RACE line also offers direct access to the Vancouver RACE program and will be connecting with Kelowna specialists as they start up their teams over the coming months.
