In partnership with Vancouver Coastal Health and the ALS Centre at GF Strong Rehab Centre, the ALS Society of BC provides mobile clinics to outlying communities to offer follow-up appointments to patients who can no longer visit the ALS Centre. Past locations have included Abbotsford, Nanaimo, Victoria, Kelowna, Kamloops, West Kootenays and Prince George. The ALS Centre team also provide in-service training about ALS to caregivers and healthcare professionals.
Location of mobile clinics is in coordination with the ALS Centre and is determined by the number of patients in the area. In 2016, 4 mobile clinics were held ( 4 in 2015, 2014 & 2013).
2016 Expenses - $6,400 (2015-$5,400, 2014-$3,900, 2013-$4,900)
