William Osler Health System employee with a patient
"In my role as a Social Worker at Etobicoke General Hospital, I provide services to patients and families from our diverse communities. In order to do so, I regularly access help from the innovative clinical and community partnerships initiated by Osler's Health Equity and Inclusion team. In particular, Osler's innovative partnership with Polycultural and Immigrant Community Services, which plays a substantial role in helping patients post-discharge with their cultural and language needs, has been tremendously helpful. Whether it's supporting a patient's cultural or religious wishes around end of life, or advocating for a newcomer to Canada who is facing language barriers, the valuable help of the diversity and equity initiatives at Osler have helped support positive patient outcomes and a more inclusive work environment."
