DOHA: A Paediatric Continuity Clinic (PCC) has officially been opened in Hamad General Hospital's
Outpatient Department, operated under a patient-centred care model.
Dr Hanan Al Kuwari, Hamad Medical Corporation's (HMC) Managing Director, inaugurated the clinic, which features eight themed treatment rooms and provides general outpatient continuity care for children.
"The patient-centred care model at the PCC means that patients will not have to move around from place to place.
Instead, they are assigned a treatment room, where the nurse, doctor, paediatric specialist or medical resident comes to them," said Dr Al Kuwari
"Children regularly visiting the clinic will be seen by the same multidisciplinary team over time, creating a closer relationship between the patient, family and their healthcare provider, and fostering familiarity and accumulated knowledge of a patient's health history," she
The PCC is staffed with a multi-disciplinary team of nurses, paediatricians, and medical residents, and compliments existing speciality paediatric clinics at the hospital.
