Well Woman Visits in Fraser Lake: Improving the Experience for Both Patients and Providers

Project Status: complete

HSDA: Northern Interior

Community: Fraser Lake

Physician Lead: Sidhu, Navpreet

Aim Statement / Goal

Our aim was to decrease provider time spent in Well Woman visits in Fraser Lake by 50% by September 2021.

Description

Well Woman visits are nerve racking for many patients, but a very important part of their healthcare. During these visits, providers take a thorough gynecological and family history, do pelvic examinations, take pap smears for cervical cancer screening, conduct STI testing, and counsel patients on preventative health services and healthy lifestyle. Sometimes patients have their own agenda and want to discuss other health issues as well.

These appointments can be overwhelming for providers and patients alike if not organized and properly planned for. Well Woman visits in Fraser Lake were booked for forty minutes because of a number of potential inefficiencies in organization and planning. In order to help improve access for other patients requiring appointments, our goal was to minimize appointment time from 40 minutes to 20 minutes.
