Published: May 24, 2019

Well.ca announced the launch of a new patient education portal, providing patients with a trusted source for therapeutic guidance on new and emerging approaches to care.

Through this portal, patients will be able to virtually connect with wellness professionals for a variety of personalized services, conveniently delivered through telehealth. The portal is available in Ontario and will be launched in the rest of Canada soon.

Health professionals will be available to advise on:

  • Naturopathic medicine;
  • Nutrition;
  • Pregnancy and parenting;
  • Mindfulness;
  • Food sensitivity testing;
  • Sleep; and,
  • Medical cannabis.

“Our customers are looking for real-time access to a variety of diversified health and wellness professionals. As patient therapies are becoming increasingly complex and multi-faceted, our goal is to enhance the education and support that patients receive,” said Rebecca McKillican, CEO, Well.ca. “Our nurse educators, allied health professionals, and other care providers can provide personalized guidance and recommendations, as well as answer questions related to emerging therapies.”

To facilitate patient access to medically-reviewed information related to the use and therapeutic implications of medical cannabis, Well.ca has partnered with licensed producers to co-create content. Under current regulations, pharmacists in Canada cannot dispense medical cannabis from a pharmacy.
