Canadian politician visits Aspen Medical to discuss our ground-breaking work in Indigenous health
Building on the visit of Chief Robert Louis in 2012, we were delighted to host Rob Norris, Member of the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan, Canada, on his recent fact-finding mission about Indigenous health.
Mr. Norris is currently the Legislative Secretary for First Nations and Metis Engagement. Accompanied by Glenn Keys, Managing Director of Aspen Medical, he took a tour of Aspen's HQ before discussing the challenges of remote Indigenous health with the Remote Area Health Corps (RAHC) team including Fiona Wake, Clinical Manager – RAHC.
Fiona explained the reasons behind RAHC's 80% repeat placement rate such as the support given to Health Professionals (HPs) before, during and after their placement. These support mechanisms include RAHC innovations such as Remote Educators who assist new-to-remote HPs and also the company's suite of e-Learning modules.
Mr. Norris commented that the work we were undertaking in Indigenous health was "world-class".
