On August 6, 2016 the Times Colonist printed the story of a medically-fragile, Indigenous man who was discharged from the Victoria General hospital with nowhere to recover from surgery except on a shelter mat or on the street after doctors removed his gallbladder. In an Op-Ed printed in the Times Colonist (August 14 2016), Dr. Kelli Stajduhar and Ashley Mollison highlight the barriers to end-of-life care for homeless people as seen in emerging findings of the Equitable Access to Care study, and promote the important work of the Palliative Outreach Resource Team (PORT) in Victoria, BC. The barriers to care that Mr. Provost has experienced including poverty, racism, and stigma, are the same barriers experienced by many of the participants in the EAC study as they approach end-of-life. Thank you to Mr. Provost for sharing his story and the outreach workers who supported him to tell his story and continue to care for many on the streets of Victoria.
