RCN Tech Support Hotline

The RCN’s Project Management Office manager, Silvana Loffredo is staffing a dedicated tech support hotline for oncology staff, and helping to troubleshoot problems for health professionals using Zoom TeleHealth for virtual appointments with patients. 

 

Remote Distress Screening

RCN project coordinator Ashley Kushneryk is supporting the psychosocial team at St. Mary’s Hospital by completing symptom management screening with cancer patients who need additional assessment to support their mental health during these stressful times.

COVID-19 and Chemo

The current health crisis is different for cancer patients, who deal with lower immunity and may need to attend hospital appointments. To help, the RCN developed an information video so oncology patients can better protect themselves. Watch. 

Educational videos for patients

The RCN is supporting its partners in finding new ways to deliver optimal care during the Covid-19 crisis. We fast-tracked an instructional video to prepare patients for chemotherapy without coming into the hospital for an education session. More videos are in the works!   Watch the video

Hospital heroes

The RCN salutes all the doctors, nursing teams, patient attendants and allied health professionals at the MUHC, the JGH and St. Mary's who are working tirelessly on the front lines to provide the best care to individuals dealing with cancer in this challenging and unprecedented situation.
