Oley Vancouver, Victoria Picnic

Laurie McBride, Oley Ambassador

Oley members share experiences in Western Canada.

About thirty people attended this September event, including home parenteral and enteral (HPEN) consumers from greater Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, and Victoria, as well as professional and support staff from our provincial program hospital, St. Pauls, and our service provider, Calea. We were delighted to have Dr. Scott Whittaker join us and introduce Dr. Ko, one of two new gastroenterologists about to join the program and share the load.

The term “picnic” was a bit of a misnomer. After all, how logical is a picnic for a group where eating is often a long forgotten occasion? More appropriately perhaps it should have been labeled a “meet and greet.” In spite of this, we had an excellent turn out and we all had an opportunity to meet other like individuals and share experiences. Many consumers had never met Calea’s customer service staff, in spite of years of telephone conversations.

There are semi-annual or quarterly support group meetings in Greater Victoria and Greater Vancouver. For additional information, or with suggestions for future events/speakers, call the Oley office (518) 262-5079/(800) 776-6539 or write me (Laurie) at Lmcbride@telus.net.
