- Tele-Kidney care is an appointment where you meet with the Prince George kidney care team using a television screen or computer, a video camera and a microphone.
- You can see, hear and talk to the health care workers in Prince George, and they can see, hear and talk to you.
- It is a lot like being in the same room.
- You will have to go to your local health care facility for the appointment.
- This type of appointment is one option you can choose that will allow you to meet with the specialist kidney care staff at a location that is closer to your home so you won't need to travel for for routine check ups.
- A health care worker might be in the same room with you, and you are welcome to bring a family member. If arranged beforehand, your regular family doctor or another health care worker could also attend if you choose.
- You can also ask anyone to leave the room if it makes you feel more comfortable.
- Most appointments you see different members of the specialist team and the appointment can be up to two (2) hours long.
- Your privacy is very important and so the appointment happens over a secure circuit and is not recorded or taped. All Tele-Kidney sessions follow the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act rules.
