Our Impact

The Virtual Rapid Access Clinics are an online patient care service that provides Ontario residents with timely access to specialist and multidisciplinary.

The clinic combines novel infrastructural approaches to virtual care; a team-based, multidisciplinary consultative model; and a unique online referral pathway that permits patients to be evaluated by an epilepsy specialist within one week from referral.

The first Virtual Rapid Access Clinic was established on April 4, 2020 as a pilot initiative to reach out to persons with epilepsy in crisis. It has achieved remarkable results to-date and looks to build upon its successful foundation by expanding service, enhancing multi-disciplinary care, augmenting educational resources for practitioners and patients, and reporting on outcomes over the next several months.
