Leading a Framework for Cultural Safety & Humility
October 4, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Calling All Health Professionals and Allies in BC!
You are invited to a cultural humility webinar action series from the First Nations Health Authority and the BC Patient Safety & Quality Council! Twelve webinar events will take place over the next year to encourage participation, learning, self-reflection and positive change among BC’s health care professionals.
The series will support development of tools and skills on how to be effective allies for advancing cultural safety and humility and what health service staff and allies can do to understand and integrate this work into their practice or interaction with First Nations and Aboriginal Clients. Hear from thought leaders such as Joe Gallagher, Dr. Evan Adams, Dr. Nadine Caron, Margo Greenwood, and representatives from health authorities in the province.
Leading a Framework for Cultural Safety & Humility is the first webinar in our series. No registration required- click here to join the webinar on October 4!
Hear Joe’s personal story of his niece Makara’s legacy and learn how one family’s tragedy resulted in Canada’s first province-wide commitment to culturally safe health services.
Explore the concepts and connections between cultural humility, safety and competence in an open and safe learning environment. Learn how system partners are engaged with improving cultural safety for First Nations and what you can do as healthcare allies to support this transformation.
