Dialogue and Storywork

In support of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Cancer Patients throughout Oncology and Primary Care Transition Experiences.
The Dialogue and Storywork project was designed to improve the transitions and outcomes of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis patients during the cancer journey.
Eight Transition Support Resources were produced to promote dialogue and discussion about the cancer journey by families, communities, primary care providers, and cancer care providers in cities. They come from stories from 28 individuals representing the First Nations patient and family perspective and from responses from 17 primary and oncology care providers in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, and Northwest Territories.
Choose a topic you would like to start with, watch the video, download the matching guide and think and talk about the questions in the guide. If you will be helping a group view and discuss the topics, there is a facilitator guide to help you out - click here.
