Programs & Services

New Vision has developed and implemented a wide variety of programs and initiatives, allowing physicians to link patients to specific programs and workshop sessions within our team to meet their specific healthcare needs.

Complex Care Program

Our Geriatric Complex Care program is a multidisciplinary team consisting of Nurse Practitioners, a Clinical Pharmacist, and a Registered Nurse who work closely with the Primary Care physicians and our in-house Geriatrician to manage elderly patients with complex conditions.  

Diabetes Management Program

Our Diabetes Program provides education, tools and ongoing support for patients with Type 2 diabetes, long-standing diabetes and pre-diabetes focusing on patient self-management. We strive to make the patient an active participant in their health care.

Hypertension Management Program

The goal of the Hypertension (HTN) Management Program is to achieve better outcomes through increased control of high blood pressure, while also promoting self-management, according to clinical practice guidelines.

Mental Health

Our Mental Health Counsellors are all Registered Social Workers or Marriage and Psychotherapist. They work with children through to seniors and provide consultation and/or short-term therapy for a variety of issues such as:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety/stress management
  • Grief and bereavement
  • Family and couple relationships
  • Trauma and abuse
  • Behavioural/attention problems
  • Parenting
  • Issues related to loss or adjustment

These services are funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. If a patient has access to counselling services through an Employee Assistance Plan or other work benefit plans, we ask that these resources be accessed first.

Nutrition

Our Registered Dietitians provide nutrition counselling and education to individuals in a variety of life stages and disease states, including:

  • Pre-diabetes

Registered Dietitians can also help healthy individuals of all ages improve their diets to prevent some of these above chronic conditions and improve their lifestyle.

Pharmacy

In addition to supporting our chronic disease management programs, our pharmacists provide core services to patients including

- counselling patients with a history of asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), as well as provide counselling for smoking cessation

- INR testing and management of patients on warfarin

 

Primary Care Memory Clinic

Every day, people living in Ontario who suffer from dementia and other memory disorders go undiagnosed or under-treated. This leads to preventable emergency room visits and long wait times to see specialists, placing an undue burden on the individual, their families, and the health care system. MINT Memory Clinics are providing patients and their families with high quality, compassionate dementia care in primary care settings within their own community.

Our Primary Care Memory Clinic provides multi-disciplinary care at the primary health care level for patients with cognitive impairment. The goal is to maintain and improve the quality of life for patients and caregivers.
