Did You Know?

Fentanyl Patch-4-Patch Program
The abuse and misuse of fentanyl patches is a very serious issue, causing significant harm, including death. The physicians of Kincardine are working together to ensure that all prescribed fentanyl patches are accounted for.

If you or a loved-one is prescribed fentanyl patches, you will be asked to return your used patches to your pharmacy before receiving your next refill of new patches.  This will ensure that all patches are kept safely in the hands of those for whom they have been prescribed.

Physician Practice Closure Update September 23, 2015

IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Kincardine Community Medical Clinic and Family Health Team wish to announce recruitment of nurse practitioners Melissa Wright and Hailey Walsh.  

Patients of Dr. Rejean Dwuyn and Dr. Steven Poirier will continue to contact the clinic utilizing the numbers associated with those respective medical practices for the purposes of scheduling and confirming follow-up appointments, receive test results, and to conduct regular business.

By employing a combination of continuous nursing and locum coverage arrangements, former patients of Dr. Duwyn and Dr. Poirier will have continued access to dedicated, full-time primary healthcare services. When an affected patient contacts the clinic to schedule an appointment, they will be advised they may be seen by either the nurse practitioner or by a physician.

In Ontario, Registered Nurses in the Extended Class, also known as Nurse Practitioners (NPs), are registered nurses with additional education (typically a Master’s degree coupled by practicum hours) and experience who are able to order and interpret diagnostic tests, communicate diagnoses, prescribe pharmaceuticals and perform specific procedures.

Regarding the recent practice closure affecting patients of Dr. Engle. The Clinic is currently updating the Patient Assignment & Notification Process and efforts are underway to reassign affected patients to remaining clinic physicians. Patients of Dr. Engle will still be able to access patient appointments with Dr. Engle until his departure date of November 26, 2015. Following Dr. Engle’s departure, patients will be temporarily assigned to a remaining physician at the clinic until a replacement physician is recruited. We are trying to keep the respective practices intact to make them attractive for physician recruitment initiatives.

The Patient Assignment & Notification Process will be finalized with notifications sent to patients via regular post on or before October 31, 2015.

The Kincardine Community Medical Clinic and the Kincardine Family Health Team are engaged in discussions with the Physician Recruiter, the Ministry of Health & Long-Term Care and the Municipality of Kincardine, in an effort to ensure patients ongoing medical needs are met.

The Patient Information Line has been updated to include a recorded option for Dr. Engle’s patients. Patients and the general public will be able to access the latest developments via the Information line. Please feel free to call: 519.396.4300 at any time to access the latest updates in this regard.

We apologize for any inconvenience as a result of the practice closures and seek your continued understanding as we transition through this process.  To ensure consistent and timely flow of information, patients and the general public are urged to contact the information line, established for this purpose, rather than contacting individual physician offices.

Date Posted:2015-09-23

The Kincardine Community Medical Clinic will maintain continuity of care for patients who are affected by the closures of the medical practices of Dr. Rejean Duwyn and Dr. Steven Poirier, effective July 17, 2015.

The practice closures were difficult personal decisions, and both physicians would like to express their appreciation for the understanding of their patients, the Municipality, the supportive and welcoming community as well as their respective clinic staff.

The Clinic appreciates the closures will result in inconvenience and stress and we are developing a coordinated plan to address patient concerns, which includes, but is not limited to:

  • There is no intention to initiate an Orphan Clinic;
     
  • Affected patients will be temporarily assigned to a physician at the clinic until replacement physicians are recruited;
     
  • Initiation of a Patient Information Line, whereby patients will be able to obtain the most up-to-date information. The Patient Information Line is: 519.396.4300.

The Kincardine Family Health Team is pleased to announce the development of a strategic partnership with Centric Health for the provision of Respiratory Therapy scheduled to commence January 2014.

  • Energy-conserving techniques
  • Breathing strategies
  • Psychological counseling and/or group support
