AimInterior Health wants to engage with patients and family members who have accessed the ambulatory clinic at Royal Inland Hospital for health care. This initiative is focused on quality improvement for the ambulatory clinic, taking into account the voices of both staff and patients alike. Ambulatory care provides acute care services to patients admitted for day procedures which do not require overnight stay. This includes diagnosis, observation, consultation, treatment, and intervention services. This care can include advanced medical technology and procedures.
