Help us spread the word on the Clinician Change Virtual Care Toolkit.
Virtual care is here to stay, and it’s one way in which we can expand safe access to care. More than ever, we need to treat virtual care as an essential part of our health system to ensure Canadians have access to the right care, at the right time, in the right place. It’s time we embrace the change.
But we recognize that embracing change can be challenging, which is why Canada Health Infoway (Infoway), and Healthcare Excellence Canada (HEC) partnered to develop the Clinician Change Virtual Care Toolkit. It contains information synthesized from existing resources and tools that support clinicians and their support staff with the use and adoption of virtual care. The toolkit was informed by the Virtual Care Together Design Collaborative, 25 teams across Canada, and other subject matter experts who worked together to prepare, implement and evaluate virtual care tools and resources that focused on community-based primary care.

Toolkit to Support Quality and Safe Virtual Care Practices
The Clinician Change Virtual Care Toolkit is a resource intended to support safe and high-quality virtual care for new and experienced providers of virtual care. The information in this toolkit was curated based on its applicability to community-based primary care organizations, but it may also be helpful to clinicians providing other types of care and in other settings.
The toolkit was developed by Canada Health Infoway and Healthcare Excellence Canada and contains information synthesized from existing virtual care resources and tools. This toolkit was informed by subject matter experts including clinicians and the Virtual Care Together Design Collaborative, an initiative which brought together 25 teams across Canada to prepare, implement and evaluate virtual care tools and resources.

- Quality and safe virtual care interactions
- Use and optimization of virtual care services.
It also includes virtual care resources that were leveraged in the development of the Clinician Change Virtual Care Toolkit and information on evaluating virtual care.
