RentSafe collaborated with doctors from the College of Family Physicians of Canada and others to help create a training podcast on mould and health, and related guides for tenants and physicians.
This user-friendly guide offers practical tips for tenants/patients experiencing health concerns related to mould in their home. It describes how to identify mould-related symptoms, suggests ways that a doctor can help get the mould problem fixed, and lists myth-busting facts about mould and mould clean-up.
Are you a physician with patients whose health is affected by mould? This guide provides a sample physician’s letter intended to help patients/tenants get mould in their rental units remediated, plus tips for connecting patients with local support services.
In this training podcast, an affected community member details her experience with mould in a rental unit and other presenters discuss, from public health and legal perspectives, how a family physician may facilitate help for an affected patient. Intended for Physicians, the podcast will be of interest to health and social providers, tenants and landlords.
