Justina Doerksen, NP(F), MN practices as a family nurse practitioner at Vancouver’s Heartwood Centre for Women. Justina takes great professional interest in the stigmas and barriers uniquely faced by women when seeking substance use treatment or support, perinatal substance use care, and acute and post-acute withdrawal management.

The insights gained will contribute to a growing body of research informing how care is provided for individuals living with mental health issues and addictions.
