Thanks to a Volunteer Association/Health Sciences Foundation Family CARE Grant, the Health Sciences Centre’s patient consent form is being translated to Oji-Cree, Cree and Ojibway. Aboriginal patients who do not speak or understand English will now have a form in their language to clearly understand what treatment or tests they are being asked to consent to.
Each patient has unique healthcare needs. So, be involved with us as we plan your care. We respect your individuality, faith and cultural background.
If you refuse treatment to the extent permitted by law after receiving clear information by a member of the healthcare team, other options will be discussed with you.
TBRHSC expects everyone to consider the rights, safety and dignity of others. Aggressive behaviour, coarse language, or discrimination in any form will not be tolerated.
