Model of Care

Our model is first and foremost about relationship. We are committed to working with people to reach their health and wellness goals.

Entry to the circle of care can occur from any point. Providers may have areas of focus or specialty, but each sees that as part of a whole that must be considered as specific issues are addressed.

This model attaches people to a team of providers rather than an individual doctor or nurse practitioner. People have a principal or ‘most responsible’ provider but there is no my client or your client – only our team.

Our cultural, emotional wellness, and health promotion staff are essential members of the team alongside physicians, nurse practitioners, and other clinicians – ensuring that individuals and families receive wholistic and comprehensive care.

Team members have flexible roles. With shared access to electronic records, they can cross-cover for colleagues as needed. When a client’s ‘principal providers’ are not available, others can seamlessly fill in. This also prevents people from being ‘orphaned’ should their principal provider leave. People continue to be attached to their teams.

Unique to the WNHAC model of care are nurse care coordinators. In addition to coordinating individual care they are point people for communication and advocacy within the team. All team members are available resources, coordinated through this role.

Regular team meetings involving all members are conducted in a case management style. Priority cases are discussed within this circle of care, thereby allowing team members to become aware of issues and to offer their unique resources and suggestions.

Most significantly, the model offers a culturally safe environment that respects traditional values, and embraces a person’s unique needs in the context of their family and community.
