Lu’ma Medical Centre

Providing Culturally Safe Healthcare

Our goal is to provide safe, culturally integrated primary health care that is accessible to families to increase positive health outcomes and remove disparities.”

 

  Indigenous Primary Care Home Team Model:

  • Indigenous GP and allied Physicians  encourage and facilitate clear communication, understanding, learning and participation with patients as a partner who facilitates active health self-management.
  • Traditional Healers / Elders to provide cultural knowledge and teachings that promote preventative Aboriginal approaches to wellness in a holistic and caring way.  The Healer will help individuals and families navigate community support services to strengthen their health and cultural network and promote spiritual, emotional and mental health. VCH is contributing by providing an Elder one half day per week.
  • Mental Health Counsellor to coach individuals and families to enable their overcoming barriers to wellness.
  • Social Worker to assist patients in accessing resources and completing forms they require to achieve goals.
  • Nurse Practitioner to support patient health and need.
