You’re invited for EHN Canada’s next educational webinar:
Indigenous Communities, Healthcare and Trust with the Current System
With Celina Sqwasulwut Williams
Spiritual Adviser and Communications, Ravenswood Consulting
A 2020 study published in the Canadian Journal of Public Health links discrimination in healthcare settings to disparities in healthcare access among Indigenous people living in urban centres, and pointed out that “critical gaps remain in our understanding of Indigenous health in Canada.” In short, neglect, abuse, lack of cultural understanding and/or discrimination from healthcare practitioners means the medical needs of some Indigenous people won’t be met. By referring to an anticolonial lens, we can review the current conditions of our healthcare system and consider how deconstructing social constructs with cultural consultations can positively impact both, Indigenous people and the healthcare system including the professionals who work within the system. Join Celina Sqwasulwut Williams as she leads a presentation pertaining to the current healthcare system and how it can improve on its diversity and inclusion measures, specifically for the Indigenous community.
- Explore the current healthcare system and identify areas that need to be modernized
- Define the role a healthcare provider plays in ensuring a safe and welcoming space
- Introduction to implementing diverse and inclusive programming/treatment for the Indigenous community
Date: March 10, 2022 – 12pm ET, 9am PT
Duration: 1-hour (45-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute Q&A)
