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.
