Keegan's story: lessons & learnings

We are pleased to share Remembering Keegan: a BC First Nations Case Study Reflection, released publicly and gifted in ceremony on Feb. 21, 2022. Keegan Combes of Skwah First Nation was a high school graduate, a grade-10 pianist, and a chess champion, who was enrolled in a trades college at the time of his death from accidental poisoning.

The case study reflection is the first of its kind shared by B.C. First Nations and is intended to help shape the quality of care for all Indigenous people in B.C. and across the country, and to prevent this from happening to anyone else.

CASE STUDY

Virtual care

Danny is a nurse in a community mental health unit that offers in-person and virtual (phone or video) appointments for clients. Joe has been a client at the clinic for about two years and has a well-established relationship with Danny and his mental health team. Joe has access to the technology needed to participate in a virtual health encounter.

Is virtual care appropriate?
