What is an Outreach Coordinator?
Outreach Coordinators are trained Registered Nurses who help connect patients with programs and services at Niagara North Family Health Team and/or resources and supports that are available in the community.
What is the role of the Outreach Coordinators in the Niagara North Family Health Team?
Our Outreach Coordinators have a large focus on providing support to patients who have recently been discharged from the hospital. Our goal is to optimize our at-risk patients health and safety in their homes and decrease unnecessary readmission to hospital.
Who should be referred to the Outreach Coordinator:
- Individuals who may need assistance with accessing programs and services at the Niagara North Family Health Team.
- Individuals who are unsure which supports and resources are available to them both within the NNFHT and in the broader community.
How can you access the services of our Outreach Coordinators?
Speak to your Family Doctor about a referral to our Outreach Coordinator or give us a call for more information.
