Important Message for Parents/Caregivers

about the increase in children with respiratory symptoms

from Dr. Kim Morrison, FLA OHT Executive Lead

 

We have all seen the news and are aware of the increase in children becoming ill with respiratory illnesses and visiting emergency rooms and primary care practices in the FLA region and across the province. Please help increase awareness and education about caring for children with respiratory symptoms. Share this Family Doctor Tips resource from the Ontario College of Family Physicians to

help families choose the right care at the right time.

Please read these Family Doctor Tips 

on how to support your child at home and when to seek care for a respiratory illness

(from the Ontario College of Family Physicians).

Ontario Health Teams (OHTs) are a new model of health-care delivery that puts patients, families and caregivers at the centre of the health-care system. ​

The Frontenac, Lennox & Addington Ontario Health Team (FLA OHT) is working toward providing more efficient, integrated and equitable health care to the people of the FLA region.

Thank you for joining the discussion and sharing your stories! 

Your participation is part of the solution. 

 

Over the last few months, we hosted online discussion groups and asked people to complete a survey. All feedback is being reviewed as part of strategic planning and summarized in the What We Heard Report, which will guide the FLA OHT priorities.  Along with public engagement, we learned from health-care partners and equity-seeking community members about the needs and strengths of the health-care system. This Fall we will launch the Strategic Plan. Stay tuned! Learn more.

With deep respect and humility, we acknowledge that the FLA OHT is located on the traditional territories of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and Huron-Wendat Nations, as well as the territories of other rural and urban Indigenous community members including Métis, Inuit, and other First Peoples from across the Turtle Island. We stand upon land that carries the footsteps of Peoples of Indigenous ancestry who have been here for thousands of years. We have an opportunity to learn from each other, improve relationships and promote respect for the past, present and future. We are thankful to share, learn, work, play and grow on these lands as we work together to build a new health-care system that will be inclusive and equal for all.
