Counselor Off-loads Patients from Nurse Practitioner Needing Counselling Support
Due to longer appointment times, patients were using their Nurse Practitioner as a counselling service, but the community got a onsite Counsellor who can now take those patients.
I think our Nurse Practitioner (NP) is very well on, because that’s why her appointments end up being so much longer than a doctor’s is because she has stated that a lot of her clients are using her as a counselling service more than a cough and cold, they go in, but now that we have our counselor that just came onside today, she was over at the Wellness, is now focused more on her counselling so what we’re hoping to do on Thursday is get them to meet up and try and transfer some of those ones that are with the NP over to her so that they can get the appropriate counselling and time that they need.
