General Neurology Program

Program Lead: Dr. Megan Yaraskavitch

The General Neurology Program involves many of the members of the Section of Neurology. These members provide outpatient clinical services to patients at each of the four adult hospital sites and in the community.

Highlights

Over the past several years the General Neurology Program in Calgary has implemented many innovations in care delivery and system processes. Our Neurology Central Access and Triage (NCAT) has expanded to involve all specialties within neurology (with the exception of Stroke and Urgent Neurology) to simplify the referral process for referring practitioners.

Additionally, we have worked with the Primary Care Network to provide a telephone consult service, Specialist Link and eReferral which includes timely telephone and electronic advice for referring physicians who have general neurology questions about their patients.

Additional innovations have been implemented to help improve quality of care and access, including increased usage of multidisciplinary services for general neurology patients.

Education

Residents, clerks and medical students commonly spend time in the general neurology clinics.
