'This Program's mission is to provide Aboriginal patients' and their families living in Prince George and Burns Lake, resources to cope with the stresses of a family member having to leave their home and stay in the hospital.'
Being in the hospital can be painful and stressful, especially for people who are far away from their family and home. The Aboriginal Patient Liaison Worker liaises between communities and the hospital healthcare staff to help facilitate healing. If transferred to another hospital, please let the Aboriginal Patient Liaison Worker know so the information can be passed on to the hospital you are going to so they are aware you will be arriving.
Aboriginal Patient Liaison Worker (APLW) assists all Indigenous members with access to high quality and culturally safe care in Northern BC and bridges the gap between traditional and western medical methods.
Simply contact your Aboriginal Patient Liaison Worker (APLW), Community Health Representative (CHR), Nurse or Social Worker and they can connect you with the In-Hospital Support.
