Lisa Greer, Nurse Practitioner - Family

Nurse Practitioners (NPs) deliver a range of health care services to First Nations individuals, families and communities. 

Nurse Practitioners are nurses with advanced knowledge and clinical skills which enable them to:

  • Diagnose and treat diseases, disorders and chronic conditions
  • Order diagnostic interventions, laboratory tests and medications
  • Manage medical conditions
  • Refer patients to specialists
  • Act as health advocates for Aboriginal members

Working with the interdisciplinary teams and physicians in each community, Nurse Practitioners also assist with health promotion, illness prevention and treatment, health education, awareness, counselling and education to reduce some of the more chronic health concerns facing community members such as diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, addictions and mental health issues.

Nurse practitioners working in Aboriginal health centres are mindful of cultural practices, approaches and traditional medicines that support holistic care and services.
