About this Event:

The NPIG Executive is pleased to invite NPIG members to our March NP Insider webinar on March 18, 2021, featuring Tara Leach, the Founder and clinical director of the H.E.A.L.T.H clinic (Health Care, Education, Advocacy, Linkage, for Trauma Informed Healing).

The H.E.A.L.T.H clinic is the first primary care clinic in Ontario committed to providing patient centered and trauma-informed primary health care to people aged 13 years and older who are at risk for, who have experienced or who are experiencing coercion, exploitation, labour and or sex trafficking. She has recently augmented the perspective of this clinic to focus on the needs of those who are working through mental health and substance use, together with The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Group.

Tara is also the co-founder of the Human Trafficking Health Alliance of Canada. Tara’s talk for the March NP Insider is titled: Nurse Practitioner in Independent Practice: Reflections of a Primary Health Care Nurse Practitioner's experience of independent practice with clients who do not have the means to pay for service.  


  • recognition of the NP role in independent practice
  • review what NPs could consider when thinking about independent practice
  • reflections/lessons learned from the past 3 years as the NP who founded H.E.A.L.T.H.


  • Tara Leach, Primary Health Care Nurse Practitioner (PHC-NP) and a certified Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE-A)
