Our team follows children with a rheumatic disease in the Rheumatology out-patient clinic. The diagnosis and treatment are often complex. Education of patients and families is critical, and dealing with the physical, learning and psychosocial challenges requires many experts from the team to be involved.
Our booking clerk can arrange for help from Bilingual Services if given advance notice.
In addition to regular clinics at the IWK Health Centre, the rheumatologists travel to Fredericton and Saint John, New Brunswick, and Charlottetown, PEI, several times per year to provide follow-up appointments for many patients.
