Fraser Health is embracing virtual methods to genuinely enhance patient care!

The Virtual Hospital program presents a fresh and innovative approach to delivering acute Mental Health and Substance Use care to individuals in the Fraser Health Region. It's an exciting initiative where you'll collaborate within a team-based, inter-professional care setting. Patient care is administered both in their homes and virtually.

As a qualified or eligible Psychiatrist, you'll be tasked with delivering exceptional care to adult patients under Fraser Health's purview, as part of a multidisciplinary team. This role involves providing consultations at the new virtual hospital, actively reaching out to patients in their residences, consulting with Assisted Living and long-term care facilities in coordination with attending physicians, and facilitating consultation-liaison within MHSU.

Your responsibilities encompass assessments, outpatient treatment and consultation, conducting family meetings, participating in case conferences, facilitating discharge planning, and instructing psychiatry residents and medical students.

Additionally, you'll foster continuity of care by fostering positive relationships with all involved in patient care and services, while advocating for the psychiatric needs of individual patients.
