Community Navigator: Available Through Doctor Referral
The Community Navigator service ended on August 25, 2017.
The Community Navigator's aim was to assist patients who are referred by their doctor, by connecting them to health-related and social support services in the community. Additionally, the role aimed to increase physician awareness about social support services available in and around the Comox Valley. The role expanded upon and worked closely with existing navigation capabilities and services within the community.
The Community Navigator was a trained professional who had extensive knowledge of the local social support services available in the community. The role worked work closely with other community agencies to understand the most appropriate services available, depending on the patient’s requirements.
The Division of Family Practice worked in partnership with the Comox Valley Transition Society to support this role.
