What is complex care?

Children who have complex medical conditions, such as extreme premature birth, cerebral palsy, congenital heart disease and children who do not have a clear diagnosis, tend to be treated by more than one health care provider, are considered to have complex care needs.

Complex care is a coordinated, comprehensive and collaborative model that is designed to fit each patient's unique needs.

Complex health needs may include:
  • Use of multiple services and specialists
  • Taking many different medications
  • Reliance on medical technology (such as feeding tubes or oxygen)
