The Aboriginal Patient Liaison Program provides assistance to First Nations patients, clients, and families, whether in the hospital or the community. The Program offers one-on-one and family visits to discuss health concerns, meetings with care providers to identify needs for culturally-specific care, cultural education to health care professionals, and is able to provide essentials while in the hospital such as toothpaste, diapers, etc. Along with Doctors, Nurses, Physiotherapists and others, the Aboriginal Patient Liaison Worker is a member of your Health Care Team.
