Asthma Education at the Wood Buffalo PCN

At the Wood Buffalo PCN Central Clinic, a respiratory therapist and pharmacist provide team-based care to pediatric asthma patients, educating them and their families on techniques to manage asthma, and finding the most effective prescriptions for their condition.

Specialist Consultation with Dr. Zuberbuhler

The WB PCN has partnered with Edmonton-based Dr. Peter Zuberbuhler, a specialist in pediatric respiratory medicine, to provide consultations with pediatric patients here in Fort McMurray who have more complex respiratory care needs.

Dr. Zuberbuhler assesses and monitors children with asthma and other respiratory conditions, and develops recommendations for their ongoing management, which is delivered by the patient's family physician, pediatrician, and the WB PCN Lung Wellness Team.
