THIS IS A RECORDED SESSION


Our most pressing challenges in healthcare require focused, constructive discussions. Sharing openly and listening to diverse perspectives and experiences. Healthcare Excellence Canada has developed the Spotlight Series to do just that. HEC’s new patient safety approach includes a broader concept of harm, including harm caused by racism. Cultural safety and anti-racism are essential to supporting safer care. Unfortunately, First Nations, Inuit and Métis people and communities continue to face racism in healthcare.

Panelists will look at how racism and culturally unsafe care affect the safety and quality of care for First Nations, Inuit and Métis people and communities. Join us to explore strategies and actions for creating culturally safe and equitable care as we take a distinction-based approach to an urgent patient safety issue.

Panelists:

Reagan Bartel, Director of Health for the Otipemisiwak Métis Government within Alberta

Mme. Bobbi Paul-Alook, Secretary of Health and Seniors for the Otipemisiwak Métis Government for the Métis Nation within Alberta

Alika Lafontaine, MD, FRCPC; Immediate past-President, Canadian Medical Association; Anesthesiologist, Alberta Health Services; Associate Clinical Professor, University of Alberta

Lynn Kilabuk, former President of Larga Baffin
