Strengthening a Palliative Approach in Long-Term Care

31-05-2023 • 22 mins

How do we address the issues of health equity when jurisdictional issues create a gap between two systems of care? We spoke with Holly Prince about the barriers to care for Indigenous peoples, and the importance of equitable access to palliative care within Indigenous communities.

Holly Prince is an Anishinaabekwe  and a member of Opwaaganisiniing  in Northwestern Ontario. She has a Master’s Degree in Social Work and is a Ph.D. Candidate in Educational Studies at Lakehead University. Holly’s research focus is on decolonial and Indigenous education and health, and community-based research.

Holly is the Lead for the Indigenous People's Health and Aging Division at the Centre for Education and Research on Aging and Health, Lakehead University, where she works as a Project Manager. A part of her role involves planning, implementing, and evaluating palliative care education and health equity initiatives for Indigenous peoples across Canada. Holly is also the Project Lead for the Canadian Virtual Hospice’s LivingMyCulture.ca project.
