Designed in collaboration with community members, health care professionals, and Pinnguaq, this app contains information that is relevant and useful for new members of the health care work force in Nunavut and was developed from the voice of our Nunavut communities. As such, it contains information about working and communicating in a multi-lingual environment, the organization of the health system, the Inuit historical context of our region, important aspects of health care practice, and values and expectations in the health care setting. It also includes useful community-specific information including maps, phone numbers, information pages, weather information, ways to get involved in the community, and things to pack.
Funding for the development of this app was provided by Health Canada and the Circumpolar Health Systems Innovation Team Grant funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
You can download it on the App Store (for Apple iOS devices) or on the Google Play Store (for Android devices).
