Working with your family doctors and allied health professionals, our Primary Care, Chronic Disease Management and Obstetrical Nurses (LPNs and RNs) specialize in helping you reach your health goals. Whether that's pre/post natal care or managing a condition such as diabetes or high blood pressure, our PCN nurses are available to help you navigate options to optimize your health & wellbeing.
Nurses help people of all ages stay healthy and manage chronic conditions. They promote healthy lifestyles through education on topics such as mental health, heart health, sexual health, women's health, and much more.
Our PCN nurses work at Bear Street Family Physicians, Canmore Associate Medical Clinic, Ridgeview Medical Centre and Mountain Maternity & Family Medicine.
You will most likely meet our nurses in one of our PCN member clinics, or as facilitators at a workshop or support group. You may receive a referral to a nurse from your family doctor or another healthcare provider. Through a detailed one-on-one review of your medical history, PCN nurses work with you to set appropriate health goals. With an action plan in place, our nurses will follow your progress, monitor results and communicate with your doctor.
If necessary, you may receive a referral for consultations with other members of our PCN team, or to one of our programs or workshops. If you require access to other parts of the health system, our nurses can connect you to the resources you need.
Many of our community workshops are run by our Nurses. Examples include
Happiness Basics, Quitcore (smoking cessation) and Birth and Beyond - A Guide to
Delivering in the Bow Valley.
