Health Care

CNSC Health Care ServicesThrough a small team of Health Care Facilitators, CNSC-O is working to improve access to primary care for individuals with a developmental disability, and to build capacity with health care professionals through training, education and support.

Working collaboratively with the Developmental Disability Primary Care Initiative, CNSC-O is using the new Primary Care Guidelines and accompanying tools to assist health care professionals, caregivers and families in enhancing the primary care experience for individuals with developmental disabilities.

Consistent with the provincial mandate, the Health Care Facilitators continue to partner with community agencies, service providers, caregivers and provincial Ministries to ensure current best practices in providing health care to individuals with developmental disabilities are available, and integrated into care.
