Our Next Cultural Safety & Humility Webinar is on July 5!

You are invited to the First Nations Health Authority and BC Patient Safety & Quality Council cultural safety and cultural humility webinar action series! This is the eighth webinar in our year-long series, which encourages participation, learning, self-reflection and positive change among BC’s healthcare professionals.

In this July 5 webinar, Dr. Charlotte Loppie asks: How does racism function as a social determinant of Indigenous peoples’ health?  How does racism shape good health for some and poor health for others? What does racism look like in our health system?  In attempting to reduce the harms of racism for Indigenous peoples, we must understand it’s complex roots in Canadian society, the pathways it travels in our systems and institutions and the ways it manifests in our relationships.

Dr. Charlotte Loppie is a Professor in the School of Public Health and Social Policy, Faculty of Human and Social Development, University of Victoria, Director of the Centre for Indigenous Research and Community-Led Engagement (CIRCLE), and Editor of the International Journal of Indigenous Health. She collaborates on Indigenous-focused initiatives aimed at research capacity development, mentorship and training; catalyzing/ developing research relationships; undertaking research projects; and sharing knowledge with diverse communities and organizations at local, regional, national and international levels.
