Project Status: Active

Community: Prince George

Physician Lead: Van Zyl, Paul

Aim Statement / Goal

To improve access to health care for patients with shoulder issues.

Description

To have patients with non traumatic shoulder issues referred to the Shoulder Care Clinic to be assessed by a Sport Medicine Doctor (SMD). The SMD will decide whether the patient needs to see a surgeon or can be treated with conservative management with a physiotherapist. The physiotherapy program will be 12 weeks and the patients will be monitored for their progress. The clinic will allow patients quicker assess to treatment and avoid long waits to see an orthopaedic surgeon and potentially being told at that point they don't need surgery.
