Alberta Health Response to Inquiry from Jill McAllister

Alberta resident Jill McAllister asked Alberta Health for any and all Lyme disease and tick related awareness that has been forwarded to Alberta physicians over the past two years.

This is the response she received today:

Thank you for visiting the Alberta Government feedback web site. Following is the response to your question prepared by Health :

Alberta Health received your inquiry regarding the Lyme disease and tick-related awareness that has been forwarded to Alberta physicians over the past two years.

Alberta Health provides public health notifiable disease management guidelines, notes for clinicians and laboratory interpretation documents for health care professionals and these are located in our public website at http://www.health.alberta.ca/professionals/notifiable-diseases-guide.html.

Alberta Health notifies physicians via Alberta Health Services Medical Officers of Health (MOHs) when there are new or updated guidance documents. The MOHs then inform the physicians in their zones of the new or updated guidance.

For example:
www.albertahealthservices.ca/assets/info/hp/phys/if-hp-phys-moh-advisory-lyme-disease.pdf

Additionally, Alberta Health periodically provides program updates to the College of Physicians and Surgeon newsletter The Messenger: www.mailoutinteractive.com/Industry/LandingPage.aspx?id=1573535&p=1

Thank you for contacting Alberta Connects.
