The Best Practices in Canadian Higher Ed has developed a guide to support post-secondary Health & Wellness and Counselling Centres in their transition to providing remote health and wellbeing services to students.
Transitioning to Remote Health and Wellness Services in Post-Secondary Settings: A Case Study Approach is intended for health and mental health clinicians, healthcare administrators, and other stakeholders considering transitioning their services from more traditional models of in-person care in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The guide provides an overview of the implementation process to delivering remote services undertaken by Health & Wellness/Counselling Clinics at five universities and reports on their service delivery models, virtual platforms, metrics, implementation challenges, lessons learned and recommendations. A follow-up on how these universities manage their re-start/recovery phases will be posted in the Fall.
The participating universities include:
University of British Columbia
University of Toronto
The Best Practices Network would like to acknowledge Dalhousie University and the University of British Columbia for collaborating and contributing to this project!
