First Nations, Metis, Inuit Cancer Control Program Education and Liaison Nurse
As part of IN SIXTY, CCMB formed the First Nations, Metis, and Inuit Cancer Control Program (FNMICC). The program works with people who face barriers to accessing services or treatment. Barriers include language, culture, living in a remote community, poverty, or other health challenges.
As part of the FNMICC, an Education and Liaison Nurse is available to help with patient and health care provider needs. Patients and family members can contact the Education and Liaison Nurse directly for help accessing the cancer system or for direction to available resources. Health care providers will receive assistance in getting efficient service for their patients through the entire cancer journey, from high suspicion of cancer, to treatment, follow up and palliative care.
