Overview of CCIRH Guidelines
- Clinical preventive care should be informed by the person's region or country of origin and migration history (e.g., forced versus voluntary migration).
- Forced migration, low income and limited proficiency in English and French increase the risk of a decline in health and should be considered in the assessment and delivery of preventive care.
- Vaccination (against measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, varicella, hepatitis B and human papillomavirus) and screening (for hepatitis B, tuberculosis, HIV, hepatitis C, intestinal parasites, iron deficiency, dental pain, loss of vision and cervical cancer) should be routinely provided to at-risk immigrants.
- Detecting and addressing malaria, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, child maltreatment, intimate partner violence, diabetes mellitus and unmet contraceptive needs should be individualized to improve detection, adherence and treatment outcomes
