Primary Care Physician In-Service on Aboriginal Homelessness

This project has a goal of improving health service delivery by primary care physicians to Aboriginal persons who are chronically, episodically, or street homeless.  This project will assist physicians in identifying mental health needs, addiction issues, and potential barriers to housing. Physicians will have the tools to identify these potential barriers and be able to refer to outreach teams, community organizations, and mental health teams.

Resources can be found HERE.
