The Department of Midwifery at BC Women’s Hospital & Health Centre (BCWH) and Providence Health Care, St. Paul’s Hospital (SPH), invites interested midwives to apply for medical staff privileges for the purposes of providing midwifery care in collaboration with The Urban Indigenous Midwifery Outreach Program (UIMOP) in Vancouver, BC. Currently, two positions are available. Please see the attached job posting of the Urban Indigenous Community Midwifery Outreach Program and note the closing date.
The Department of Midwifery has made available two sets of dual privileges (BCWH and SPH) to support midwifery care for the Indigenous community. The Urban Indigenous Midwifery Outreach Program (UIMOP) provides holistic midwifery care while working in relationship with Indigenous individuals, families, and communities in a culturally safe and respectful manner.
Currently, the Urban Indigenous Midwifery Outreach Program has partnered with Urban Native Youth Association Health and Wellness Centre (UNYA), Lu’ma Medical Centre (LMC) and Kilala Lelum (Urban Indigenous Health and Healing Cooperative (UIHHC)). UNYA functions as a place-based storefront for increased and improved access to a dynamic range of health and mental health services for urban Indigenous youth ages 12-24 years. To ensure accessibility for youth, operating hours include afternoons and evenings for scheduled appointments, drop-ins, workshops, and other supportive programming. LMC provides culturally safe healthcare to children, youth and families. LMC strives for excellence in culturally integrated primary health care that is accessible for families. They provide the conditions urban Indigenous peoples need to improve health and wellbeing. UIHHC aims to partner Indigenous Elders with physicians and allied health professionals to provide physical, mental, emotional and spiritual care to the community in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. The Urban Indigenous Midwifery Outreach Program is continuing to grow, expand and partner with other allied health organizations in Vancouver to further the care of the families we serve.
The goal of the UIMOP is to collaborate with community partners to reach as many Indigenous families as possible. This increases access to health services in both a timely, inclusive and holistic manner through the provision of on-site clinical care. There is primary care, midwifery care, elder support, counselling services and other allied health programming and support readily available as part of this program.
Designated hospital privileges will only be available while working with the Indigenous Urban Midwifery Outreach Program. Should the midwives relationship with UIMOP cease, hospital privileges will be rescinded. Successful candidates will be required to sign an agreement to this effect upon receipt of medical staff privileges.
* Preference will be given to applicants intending to work full-time in order to help meet the high demand for midwifery
care in Vancouver.
