About this event:

Creating safer spaces for Indigenous Peoples in health care webinar is in partnership with the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO), Indigenous Primary Health Care Council (IPHCC) and RNAO's Indigenous Nurses and Allies Interest Group (INAIG).

This webinar intends to:

  • define Indigenous cultural safety and explain its importance in health service delivery;
  • recognize ways in which colonization has adversely impacted the health and wellbeing of Indigenous Peoples;
  • demonstrate an understanding of the legacy of Indian Residential Schools, and acknowledge the ways in which it created this cycle of intergenerational trauma for survivors, their families and their communities;
  • commit to developing a critical consciousness and the knowledge and skills necessary to work in a culturally safe and trauma-informed way while uplifting and supporting Indigenous nurses; and
  • identify potential next steps that can be taken in order to continue your learning journey and get involved.

Presenters and credentials:

  • Monica Cote Macson, Indigenous cultural safety team lead, IPHCC
  • Victoria Guido, RN, INAIG chair

The webinar will focus on nurses and health-care providers supporting First Nations communities and organizations; however all are welcome to attend.
