A new large-scale heart monitoring system has been installed throughout the Health Sciences Centre through the generosity of donors. A $850,000 grant from the Health Sciences Foundation helped fund the system which includes WiFi-based monitoring systems, centralized monitoring stations and easier transfer of patient information between departments or units.
Children are referred to the Paediatric Healthy Living Program by a Paediatrician. The Paediatric Healthy Living Program is a two-year family-based program focused on healthy lifestyles for children and youth ages 4-17 with complex obesity. The program’s goal is to help children and their families improve their eating habits, physical activity levels, emotional well-being and overall health. Our inter-professional team (Social Worker, Nurse Practitioner, Dietitian, Psychologist and Kinesiologist) work with paediatric patients and families to support healthy lifestyle goals through individual assessment, counseling and group-based education.
