Transitions in Care
The Transitions in Care initiative is bringing together the South Island Division of Family Practice, physicians, the Saanich Peninsula Hospital, and the W’SANEC First Nation community to collaborate and create an effective, culturally safe journey for First Nation clients transitioning into and out of hospital. This innovative transitions plan will be applicable for all hospitals and of benefit to all Aboriginal people navigating the hospital system.
Key features of the Transitions in Care initiative include:
- Physician-focused World Cafés
- Community-driven events and workshops
- Hospital focus and working groups
- Community focus / working groups, feasts, and interactions
- Cultural safety training and awareness for hospital staff

Journey Home Project
We are so excited to post this unique, fully funded opportunity to join the Journey Home Project, which is an innovative reconciliation project, to embed “cultural safety” in our palliative care services for First Nation patients on the Saanich Peninsula. Please see the attached full description.
We invite you to be part of positive collaborative change in addressing the persistent challenges that we all face as care providers for Indigenous peoples in Canada, specifically as it pertains to Palliative and End of Life care.
