The Navigator will link clients with inter-professional, collaborative, integrated and holistic primary care health providers, specialists care, therapists and other community programs and services. The Navigator will carry a caseload of non-rostered clients. The Navigator will focus on the provision of clinical triage and provide screening, assessment, case management and supportive counselling. The Navigator will help to educate and empower clients to engage in managing their own health care and act as a ‘health promoter within’ the DW sub-region. The Navigator will build system capacity by creating connections between health service providers and other providers in the community.
2. The Navigator will work from a community development/case finding perspective to develop and test an integrated, holistic model of care that will address all aspects of health, and ensure clients are “warmly” connected to the right care, at the right time, and in the right place.
