Featured Speaker: Dr. Jennifer Shea

In March 2014, work began on the three-year initiative entitled a Journey in the Big Land, aimed at enhancing the cancer care journey for First Nations, Inuit and Metis patients in Labrador. The project has three priority areas including enhancing Transitions in Care, Tele-oncology and Cultural Safety. The presentation will provide an overview of one of the first pieces of work completed through this initiative the Community and Clinic profiles. These profiles were developed in partnership with FNIM communities/organizations, Labrador-Grenfell and Eastern Health partners. The profiles will be an important tool for health care providers and help improve transitions in care when patients are discharged back to their communities.
