Telederm@ Atikokan Family Health Team
This is a service provided by our registered nurses using our Ontario Telemedicine Network. Patients with skin conditions that need to be assessed by a dermatologist are referred to this program by their family physician. The nurses take a brief history of the patient and then they obtain photos of the problem skin areas using a store forward photography kit. The nurses then send the information to the dermatologist using a secure website. The dermatologist will examine the photos and respond within 7 days with the recommended appropriate treatment.
