Indigenous Allyship: Family Physicians Providing Culturally-Safe Care to Indigenous Patients
Culturally safe care is critical to improve health equity for Indigenous patients and provide them and their families with a sense of belonging, care and comfort. This requires a collective approach between patients, their primary health care team and local indigenous organizations and partnerships.

On February 27, 2020, please join the Ontario College of Family Physicians (OCFP) in a one-hour interactive webinar, to learn more about how to engage in culturally safe care with Indigenous patients and ensure patients are partners in the health care decision-making process.

Webinar presenters, Dr. Claudette Chase and Dr. Rebekah Neckoway will:

• Outline healthcare practices that incorporate Indigenous health knowledge and support family physicians’ efforts to incorporate reconciliatory practices

• Share information about local, regional and national Indigenous-led organizations and community leaders

• Discuss continuing professional development (CPD) offerings and education that is available to family physicians and primary care teams, in the areas of Indigenous cultural sensitivity (e.g. professional development that covers anti-racism and anti-oppression, health inequities, and the social determinants of health and residential schools in a clinical setting)

Who: Family physicians and primary care providers who provide healthcare services to Indigenous populations

When: February 27th from 12:00- 1:00 PM EST

This Group Learning program has been certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada and the Ontario Chapter for up to 1 Mainpro+ credits.

There is no cost to attend.
