Patient Navigators

Navigating health care can be difficult. A patient navigator is a person who can help you access health care services and support, regardless of where you live in PEI or where you are on your health care journey.
Anyone can access the patient navigator with a question or a concern about how to navigate Health PEI services, including health services that are not offered in PEI and require out-of-province travel.
Using a Health PEI patient navigator can improve the experience for patients and their families.
The role of the patient navigator is to ensure you connect with the right resources and information to help you. The navigator can help guide you through the health care system to ensure you access the most appropriate service(s) for your health care needs.
The patient navigator works directly with patients, their family and caregivers, health care providers and other individuals or organizations that provide patient services and supports in PEI.

They can
• work with health care providers and programs who can support you;
• help you find and access community resources;
• help coordinate health care services you require; and
• answer questions you have about the health care system.

The patient navigator can not offer treatment suggestions or adjust wait times for procedures or the Patient Registry
