What your experience of being a part of Population and Public Health team might be like?
Our employees share...

 “I did the final practicum of my Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) in Public Health Nursing and I have worked in the field for four years. I’ve worked in a variety of settings, including with children, families, schools, immunizations and case management of vaccine-preventable diseases. We get intense education in epidemiology, immunization, communicable diseases and counseling. This piqued my interest in communicable disease follow-up. When an opportunity arose to work at Fraser Health, I seized it and I have loved it ever since!   

I enjoy the collaborative approach between our Public Health Nursing team, the community, and our interdisciplinary partnerships to reach a common goal. It is also a dynamic, independent role and I love the professional growth it allows me to achieve. It is such a unique experience to be in the epicentre of outbreak management during a pandemic.”

“I’m a public health nurse. During COVID-19, I have done contact tracing. This work is detailed and urgent. When someone tests positive, we call them to ask questions about symptoms and their whereabouts during the time they could have been contagious. We monitor cases and contacts daily to ensure they are getting better and equip people with what to do if they aren’t. It can be very emotional. Reassuring clients and helping them feel supported is key. Balancing contact tracing volumes and regular services was a challenge. We now do contact tracing through a centralized hub. I also do overdose crisis work. Outreach now has to be done differently but we are finding solutions. I supported a long-term care facility during an outbreak of COVID-19. Acting quickly to keep people safe was critical. The partnership with our team, our medical health officers and the facility made it possible to get them safely out of the outbreak. Through challenges, our team has found ways to work differently, adapt to changing guidelines and maintain core essential services so people continue to get the care they need. In public health, we’re in a position to make an impact on outcomes for people and to stop the spread of the virus. It’s an empowering feeling to know our role and its positive influence.”
