Integrated Chronic Care Service (ICCS)
Primary Health Care
The Integrated Chronic Care Service (formerly known as the Nova Scotia Environmental Health Centre) provides comprehensive assessments and care planning for individuals with complex chronic conditions such as:
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)
  • Environmental illnesses including Multiple Chemical Sensitivity
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Functional neurologic and gastrointestinal syndromes
  • Multiple chronic conditions
Our model is based on the premise that chronic disease outcomes are better managed by addressing the needs of the whole person with a focus on self-management support.  With a team of interdisciplinary health care professionals, we integrate the physical, psychosocial and environmental needs of individuals by focusing on the person instead of the disease(s)/condition(s), improving functional health and quality of life.  Our care team includes: physicians, occupational therapists, a nurse practitioner, registered nurse, licensed practical nurse, psychotherapists and a dietitian.
