How do I View a Secure Message?

 

Through February to April 2024, LNPLC’s social work student will ask you to complete a short questionnaire for your health record about informing the Clinic of your Power(s) of Attorney (POAs) and/or your Substitute Decision Maker(s) (SDMs).

The Lakehead Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinic is pleased to welcome Liuba, a social work student from Lakehead University. She will be asking you about updating your health record to include an Ontario-wide initiative called Advance Care Planning. Through February to April 2024, Liuba will be at reception on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays to ask you to fill out a short questionnaire. It will be about your substitute decision maker(s) and/or power(s) of attorney for personal care in the event that you are sick or injured and could not tell your nurse practitioner what kind of care you wanted.This is a scary thing to think about, but thinking about it today will help bring you peace of mind for the future!

If you would prefer to fill out the questionnaire at home and return it to the clinic on your next visit, you can print it off and hand it in to any clinic staff, at reception, or you can complete the fillable PDF form and email it to info@lnplc.ca. If you have any questions, Liuba is happy to answer them for you when she is at reception.

We greatly appreciate your participation in helping us enhance your patient care!

Sincerely,

Liuba (Social Work Student) and LNPLC Management
