Chronic disease management

Professional nursing follow-ups, all across the Province of Quebec

Our veteran nurses are experienced in dealing with chronic disease: they are used to dealing with such situations in CLSCs. Monitoring patients, compliance with the treatment plan, teaching and prevention are just some of the many tools in their arsenal.

  • Adjustment of the insulin dose in collaboration with the physician or pharmacist

  • Nutrition assistance and advice

 

Anticoagulant therapy

  • Adjustments to the medication, in consultation with the pharmacist
  • Monitoring blood work (RNI)
  • Diet advice (food to avoid or eat in moderation)

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

  • Monitoring diet and sleep
  • Taking a patient's vital signs
  • Verification of the patient's technique with their pump and teaching, if necessary
  • Follow up of any side effects from the medication
