The Urgent Neurology Clinic

Program Lead: Dr. Alexandra Hanson

The Urgent Neurology Clinic

 

The Urgent Neurology Clinic was established in 2000 so adult patients requiring an urgent outpatient neurological consultation could be seen in a timely manner.  The Urgent Neurology Clinic’s mandate is to see patients within five business days.  Further investigations are then expedited as needed.

Referrals to the Urgent Neurology Clinic are triaged by a neurologist at FMC.  Patients are seen at two sites: FMC and RGH.  The SHC site moved back to RGH in November 2019.

This past year, the Urgent Neurology Clinic has been involved in the QI project: Improving the Care of Patients with Neurological Symptoms after Discharge from an Emergency Department, led by Dr Megan Yaraskavitch and Erin Barrett, QI Coordinator.  The criteria for the Urgent Neurology Clinic have been revised and clarified.  The Urgent Neurology Clinic continues to work in conjunction with General Neurology Central Access and Triage to ensure patients are seen in the most appropriate clinic.

When the ambulatory clinics were restricted during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Urgent Neurology Clinic continued to see those patients who needed to be seen urgently.  Where possible, however, appointments were by telephone.

The Urgent Neurology Clinic is an excellent clinic for both resident teaching and evaluation.
