McConnell Patient Resource Centre

Many patients come through the doors of the McConnell Patient Resource Centre following a diagnosis and don’t know what to do next. We take the time to understand the needs of each patient, and provide appropriate and tailored information based on their requests. We are part of a full continuum of services that support patients, families and caregivers along each step of their journey at the MUHC.

The Challenge

In the moments following a diagnosis, patients can feel anxious and vulnerable and they are often unsure of who to turn to or how to obtain more information about their condition.

The Solution

The McConnell Patient Resource Centre of the adult hospital at the Glen site is a one-stop shop for patients, families and caregivers alike. It offers a variety of specially-curated print and online resources for patients to learn more about their illness so they can be better informed and take an active role in their care.

The McConnell Patient Resource Centre houses a collection of more than 300 books and hundreds of brochures and it has a dedicated librarian on staff. In addition to offering health resources, it also has computers for visitors to use free of charge and offers books, newspapers and iPads for leisure reading.

To continue to improve the patient experience at the MUHC, the McConnell Patient Resource Centre is seeking to add to its growing collection of books, brochures, and online resources so patients and their families can receive up-to-date information on as many illnesses and diseases as possible.
