Updated lower back pain EMR tool now available

The QBIC team is pleased to announce that an updated Low Back Pain EMR tool is now available for use in TELUS PS Suite EMRs!

 

The goal of this tool is support clinicians with targeted back pain assessment and management. This custom form will guide family physicians and/or nurse practitioners to recognize common mechanical back pain syndromes and screen for other conditions for which management may include investigations, referrals and specific medications.

 

Key features:​

A small challenge can go a long way!

Our eCE team loves a great challenge, which is evident in our latest Food Bank donation competition! Each of the four teams were assigned a donation category and were given two weeks to fill their Food Bank donation boxes.

 

Congratulations to “The Lucky Team” who won the challenge!

 

 

At the end of the day, the biggest winner is The Food Bank of Waterloo Region. With combined efforts, our teams donated 303 items and $820 in donations. These donations will be used to assist 1 in 20 households in Waterloo Region who are in need of food assistance.

 

Since hunger can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time, The Food Bank relies on community support to assist households in our region all year around.  

 

 

Did you know?
  • 34,408 people – 35% of who are children – access emergency hamper and community meal programs as well as many other vital supports.  

  • Last year, The Food Bank acquired and distributed 4,523,167 pounds of food to a network of 100+ community programs and agency partners.

  • 1,600 community meals are distributed every day are distributed every day, with all food groups equally represented.

 

How can you help?

 

The Food bank experiences a significant drop in donations during the summer, which makes summertime the perfect time to donate! The Full Bellies. Happy Hearts. ½ million meal challenge kicked off on June 1 and is running until August 31. Gather your workplace together, divide up into teams and challenge each other to see who can bring in the most donations!
