The BC Ig Neurology Program provides support for the appropriate use of IVIg through the provision of clinical guidance and consultation.  The goal of the program is to support physicians across the province in clinical management of patients with conditions where Ig therapy is being considered. The program includes centralized screening of select neurology conditions with the aim of providing peer-to-peer consultative support, ongoing patient evaluations, optimized IVIg utilization and improving patient care. The program has recently been restructured to support both Peripheral Nervous System (PNS) and Central Nervous System (CNS) conditions.

The current BC IVIG Neurology Program Panel members include Dr. Kristine Chapman, Dr. Katie Beadon and Dr. Nadim Jiwa.

The following documents will support the Neurology Program.  For specific condition details, refer to the condition lists located on the PNS and CNS pages.
