Virtual care is new to most of us. Asking questions or asking someone to join you shouldn't be. We're here to help you make the most of your virtual visits. 

We worked with the Canadian Medical Association to develop two virtual care checklists and a how to make the most of your virtual visit infographic to help you prepare for and make the most of your virtual visits.

How to Make the Most of Your Virtual Visit

Get comfortable with the technology before your visit. Be set up in front of your computer, tablet, or smartphone at least 10 minutes before your visit.

Get organized and have your lists ready: Symptoms, Allergies, Medications / vitamins, Treatments or past procedures, Questions

Did you know? Patients who ask questions and take an active role are more satisfied with their care and see greater improvement in their health than patients who don’t.

Symptoms not suitable for virtual care include but aren't limited to: Ear pain, Chest pain, Loss of vision or hearing, Cough, Shortness of breath, Abdominal or digestive problems
