Nurse practitioners and physicians offer a broad range of health care services including assessment, diagnosis and treatment. Our goal is to support people to achieve and maintain the best possible overall health. Our services range from care for acute, occasional illness to supporting management of chronic diseases.
Regular NP clinics are offered in First Nation communities, and at our central service location in Kenora. In-house laboratory services are also available in Kenora, and on a monthly basis in most First Nation communities.
Diabetes education and management is provided by a registered nurse, a registered dietitian, and foot care nurses. Together they provide care and support lifestyle choices intended to promote living well with diabetes. They also collaborate with other primary health care providers to offer:
- diabetes education
- insulin adjustments
- nutrition counselling
- regular blood work
- case management
- referral to traditional healing
- retinal screening
- foot care/chiropody services
