Cultural Safety & Humility Action Series

In 2016 & 2017, we hosted a cultural safety and cultural humility webinar action series with First Nations Health Authority. 11 webinar events took place over the year to encourage participation, learning, self-reflection and positive change among BC’s health care professionals.

The series supported 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.

In the webinar recordings and slides, you can learn from thought leaders such as Joe Gallagher, Dr. Evan Adams, Dr. Nadine Caron, Margo Greenwood, and representatives from each regional health authority in the province.
