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.
The Indigenous Navigator is available for guidance and support when patients and families are unfamiliar with medical systems, do not speak English, and/or have travelled a long distance for treatment.
