4. What training do the healthcare specialists at Dialogue receive?
Dialogue’s medical team is made up of some of the most qualified healthcare professionals in Canada. They have many years of experience and practice and were recruited through a stringent selection process. While providing virtual healthcare through Dialogue, they continue deepening their knowledge in clinical, hospital and emergency settings. Indeed, each member of Dialogue’s care team receives personalized and ongoing medical training, including a specially designed component around the most commonly experienced issues among breast cancer survivors and their families.
5. As a member, can I select the type of healthcare professional I would like to consult?
Every request first undergoes a triage process to assess your needs. If you’re asking about your symptoms, Dialogue will assess your situation to direct you to the best resource, whether that is advice from a Dialogue nurse, a virtual appointment with a nurse practitioner or doctor, or an in-person appointment if a physical examination is needed to assess your symptoms.
6. As a member, if I’ve already consulted a healthcare specialist on Dialogue, can I request the same person in a future consultation?
Your health is always Dialogue’s top priority. This is why the continuity of care is maintained as much as possible when you’ve already consulted a member of Dialogue’s team for a health problem. If ever you experience a new issue, or if the professional you usually consult is not available in the timeframe in which you need to consult and you have to see another member of the team, know that this second healthcare professional will have access to your medical file on Dialogue and will be up-to-date on your health status, thanks to the information you previously shared.
7. Is there a discussion forum for Dialogue members?
To protect members' confidentiality, there is no discussion forum.
8. How does Dialogue ensure the confidentiality of my information?
Your information remains confidential. For more details click here.
