The commissioners worked on their report.

May 9, 2012

The commission has been spending the last few weeks working on its draft report/discussion paper. As part of its weekly meeting, the commission spoke with Fatima Couto, Clinic Manager, Student Health Services, HCDS about some of the improvements that have been made over the past few years to the services provided to students, including the hiring of a mental health nurse and additional counselors, sustained efforts to better integrate health and counselling and the fact that a number of appointments in each physician’s daily calendars are held for students with mental health issues. 

Ms Couto identified the need for a more effective triage system so that students are directed to the appropriate stream of service quickly. The group also discussed the HCDS funding model, how itcould be possible to employ a nurse practitioner, options relating to more after-hours/weekend clinics and how to better “red flag” students who are withdrawing from university life.
