About

You may be referred by your Family Doctor to Eleanor, the Registered Nurse Educator, for an educational assessment regarding your condition. She will offer you educational material and an opportunity to discuss your concerns regarding this new or ongoing diagnosis. It is possible that you will see the Registered Nurse Educator only one time for this education or you may have a regular follow up appointment at the discretion of your Family Doctor and with your agreement. At these appointments you will have an opportunity to ask questions about managing a chronic condition, how to set small goals for self-care and how to know when to seek more acute medical attention.

It is the goal of the program to educate patients and their caregivers or family about self-management of congestive heart failure medications and behaviors and to provide support and access to support from the medical community and specialist care as required.
