Modules for People Working in Healthcare
Indigenous Cultural Safety Training
Everyone working in healthcare has a responsibility to contribute to respectful care that honours and includes cultural traditions and beliefs. In these modules, you will hear from Indigenous Peoples about their values, beliefs, and views about care, explore barriers to culturally safer care, and learn how to address these barriers.
Living with an advanced illness is difficult for patients, their families, friends, and members of their community. Lack of cultural knowledge or failure to ask what is important to a patient and family, impacts care, makes the experience more difficult, and grief more complex.
These modules are currently housed on their own site and will be migrated to the learning hub shortly. To access the modules, please click here.
