This session: Oxygen Therapy with Rob McKay, Manager at Northern Respiratory Centre
Rob McKay graduated from Canadore College’s Respiratory Therapy program in 2003. After a brief stint working in Saskatoon at the Royal University Hospital, Rob came back to North Bay where he has worked in home care since 2005 and as the Manager at Northern Respiratory Centre since 2016. With a client centered focus, it is Rob’s goal to provide top-level service for every client. If you have a question about oxygen or CPAP, Rob is the guy to ask. 

About our "Beyond Dying" series:
Palliative care goes beyond comfort while dying. Knowing more about this multi-faceted topic helps us care for our loved ones, deal with changes in our own health, and be able to serve our community through organizations like Near North Palliative Care Network. This in-person education series complements the HPCO Hospice Volunteer Training Curriculum for palliative care volunteers and is an excellent learning opportunity for anyone, whether or not they volunteer with our client-centered palliative care service.

This lunch-and-learn series runs on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month and is open to everyone. Please register to join us!
