Indigenous Health Patient Advocate provides/assists with:

  • emotional support
  • spiritual and cultural care
  • advocacy
  • access resources
  • discharge planning
  • care plans
  • facilitates communication
  • cultivate a relationship between Indigenous patients and their health care providers that is culturally sensitive and promotes culturally safe care and interactions

The Indigenous Health Patient Advocate can help improve continuity of care by raising awareness and promoting the following checkpoints prior to discharge:

  • Does the patient require MEDICAL EQUIPMENT?
  • Does the patient require HOME CARE SERVICES?
  • Does the patient require DRESSING CHANGES?
  • Does the patient have TRANSPORTATION HOME?
  • Does the patient have FOLLOW-UP APPOINTMENTS booked?
