Aboriginal health liaisons are a key part of the care team providing support, advocacy and health education to Aboriginal clients and their families in hospital and community settings.
Aboriginal health liaisons connect with Aboriginal patients and family members, health care professionals, and other service providers to make sure Aboriginal patients receive culturally safe, appropriate, and timely care, whether in hospital or community.
Aboriginal health liaisons:
- Connect patients to community services
- Advocate for Aboriginal clients and assist in system navigation
- Educate health professionals and care teams in providing culturally safe care for Aboriginal clients
If you are Aboriginal and receiving care in the Fraser Salish Region, you can contact an Aboriginal health liaison to help you access health care services to meet your needs.
