What is the virtual clinic?
The Branchés santé virtual clinic was created during the pandemic to provide support to employees. This initiative aims to offer free teleconsultations to CISSS des Laurentides teams to provide them with support, listening skills, to meet their health and wellness needs, to share tools and refer them to other services in complete confidentiality. The services were offered by professionals of the organization who had been relieved of their usual duties because they could not be in contact with patients. Ultimately, the results were excellent and made it possible to keep several people in place and thus have a positive impact on the quality of care and services to the population.
