MRP Aboriginal Liaison Coordinator

What is the role of the MRP Aboriginal Liaison Coordinator?

The Aboriginal Liaison Coordinator is a resource for MRP staff and our Indigenous patients to ensure culturally appropriate care and assist in coordinating relevant resources. The liaison runs a monthly Patient Representative Committee meeting and also works with Indigenous communities and various organizations to deliver kidney health education programming.

When should you call the Liaison?

  • When you have already contacted WRHA Indigenous Health but are having issues coordinating support through WRHA Indigenous Health (interpreters, etc.)
  • When there has been a communication breakdown or there needs to be a more collaborative approach in meeting an Indigenous patient’s needs
  • When extra support is needed to facilitate a relocation or discharge
  • If the patient is missing treatments or scheduled appointments
  • When your unit/program is planning initiatives or services that impact Indigenous patients and you want guidance on culturally appropriate approaches
