• Video on the Quebec First Nations diabetic retinopathy screening service
Oct 28, 2016

We would like to inform you of the launch of an online video produced by the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Health and Social Services Commission (FNQLHSSC) in order to present the tele-ophthalmology diabetic retinopathy screening service. Currently, this service is available in more than twenty First Nations communities in Quebec.




The many possibilities of telehealth are relatively unknown. To promote the development of these services and encourage people to use them, it is necessary to demystify them and to increase their visibility. The video shows a concrete case where telehealth has enabled access to services.




We hope that this video will benefit the actors involved in the implementation of remote screening for diabetic retinopathy and we sincerely thank all those who participated in this project.
