RNAO position statement on Islamophobia

On June 6, RNAO recognized the one-year anniversary of the hate-motivated attack on a Muslim family in London, Ontario with the release of its position statement on Islamophobia. 

The statement reads: “RNAO is committed to a health system and nursing profession that is free from Islamophobia. Islamophobia is contrary to the person-centred, equitable and accessible health system that RNAO believes in and advocates for. Also, Islamophobia, as a social determinant of health, negatively influences the health of Canada’s Muslim population.”
