Nurse Practitioner-Led ClinicsNorth Muskoka Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinic

Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinics are a new health care delivery model in which Nurse Practitioners are the lead providers of primary health care. These clinics were created to provide accessible, quality family health care services to people who do not have access to a regular health care provider.

What is a Nurse Practitioner?

A Nurse Practitioner is a Registered Nurse with advanced training and skills in the areas of health assessment, diagnosis and treatment of common episodic illnesses as well as chronic disease. The Nurse Practitioner works within a scope of practice set forth by the College of Nurses of Ontario. Their practice is based on a holistic approach and they work collaboratively with many other health professionals.

What Services Can Nurse Practitioners Provide?

– Diagnose and treat illness and/or injuries
– Perform physical check-ups
– Pap tests
– Immunizations
– Order and interpret diagnostic tests
– Write prescriptions and monitor chronic conditions
– Provide treatments and/or procedures
– Make referrals to specialists

A Team Based Approach

Our Clinic operates with a team based approach. In addition to four nurse practitioners, our health care team includes:

Registered Nurse: The Nurses will be using their full scope of practice. They will conduct health care assessments including meet and greet visits, focused assessments, pap tests, immunizations, lab tests, well baby, well mom and health promotion/education.

Registered Dietitian: The dietitian uses food and nutrition knowledge to provide practical advice to help promote health and wellness and manage chronic diseases.

Social Worker: The social worker provides counseling support to patients in our clinic addressing such issues as; depression, stress/anxiety, chronic illness/pain, grief/loss and poverty.

A message from NPAO President Leanna Lefebvre:

Please step outside at 7pm tonight & light a #Candle4COVID

As we mark the one year anniversary of the World Health Organization's declaration of a global pandemic, we honour the lives lost and appreciate the magnitude of grief that will forever change families and communities. We recognize the strength and resilience of all front line heroes and thank all who have been giving of themselves to others during this difficult time. We stand together. We will get through this together. #togetherwecandoit
