The flow of information directly impacts the personal, social, economic, and environmental factors of patients’ health care between Northern Manitoba and Nunavut. This session will cover how a lack of information connectivity can create barriers to accessing quality care in Indigenous communities. Dr. Goulet will speak from experience about times where improved information processes could have led to cost savings, avoided duplication of work, and created clarity for rural teams.
Sara Goulet is a Metis family doctor who grew up in the Red River Valley. Like her father, a bush pilot, she travels all over northern Manitoba and the Kivalliq region of Nunavut providing health care services to First Nations and Inuit communities since graduating from family medicine residency in 2007. She provides leadership and support to the fly-in doctors at Ongomiizwin Health Services (formerly known as NMU). In order to maintain her knowledge, skills and relationships needed to best service her Indigenous communities, she works to provide hospitalist services at HSC in the CAU and SICU. She is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Family Medicine and the Associate Dean of Admissions for the Max Rady College of Medicine.
