'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.
The Aboriginal Patient Liaison program is offered to Aboriginal patients, to make their hospital stay in Prince George University Hospital ease and more comfortable. We work with patients on an as needed basis, who are at any stage of the life cycle.
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.
