Our pcn team
Irma van den hadelkamp
My name is Irma van den Hadelkamp. I am a Registered Nurse working for the Peaks to Prairies PCN Women & Infant Health program in Sundre since April 2014. My job at the clinic is to prepare and educate all maternities during their pregnancy, labor and transition to motherhood. On your prenatal visits you will visit me and your family doctor. We like to work as a team together with you, so we can give you a good pre and postnatal experience. I do follow up appointments until the baby is 6 weeks old, but you are always welcome to book an appointment with me if you need any advice after this period. Since October 2017, I am an International Lactation Consultant and I am happy to assist you when you experience any breastfeeding challenges.
I have been a Registered Nurse for over 25 years and received my training through Humber College in Ontario. After graduating I worked in Sparta Tennessee for a short time before returning home to Alberta where I was hired by Sundre General Hospital. In 2003 I began working as an RN for Greenwood Family Physicians until 2014 when I was hired as a Case Coordinator by Peaks to Prairies Primary Care Network. It was perfect for me, I was able to remain at Greenwood Family Physicians with the Staff and Patients I had grown very close to! I continue working within Greenwood Family Physicians Clinic, in the field of Chronic Disease Management and am available to Patients 3 days per week interested in making healthy lifestyle changes to manage Diabetes, hypertension, weight management, cholesterol or smoking cessation.
I am a Certified Exercise Physiologist with over 10 years experience in exercise prescription for individuals living with a chronic disease, disability or weight management support. My passion is to provide education and support for all individuals to be active and healthy at any level. I began my career with the health region in Saskatchewan and have extended my experience working in Alberta within the private, public and non-profit sectors. I enjoy spending my free time with my amazing family. We love camping, fishing, skiing, trips to the mountains, or relaxing on a beach. Unsurprisingly, I participate in any sport or physical activity and I am a Saskatchewan Roughrider fan. I am excited to be part of the Peaks to Prairies PCN Team and to support the doctors and their patients at the Greenwood Family Physicians!
My family is my greatest joy in life! I enjoy being active: hiking, biking, river swimming and playing outside in general. I have always had an interest in health and well-being; a Registered Social worker since 1997 and a student and teacher of Yoga since 2000. I love being part of a community that supports people to be their best selves; physically, socially and emotionally.
