Integrated Care Teams (ICTs)
The Downtown CHC is staffed with ICTs to serve people in the Downtown Eastside who experience barriers accessing services, have no primary care provider and are challenged by complex health concerns (including psycho-social, physical, mental health and addiction co-morbidities). Each ICT provides care on-site and via outreach, with nurses, social workers, counsellors, peer specialists, community liaison workers, family physicians, nurse practitioners, and psychiatrists. ICTs are supported on-site by more specialized care providers: wound care clinicians, palliative care nurses, occupational therapists, dieticians, and many other disciplines. A client will be connected to a specific ICT for ongoing care.
