LL – Cultural Safety

As we look to address the social injustices of health and wellbeing, we must first acknowledge and reckon with the roots of the western medical model. The framework of Cultural Safety understands and names the history, context, and ongoing role colonization has in the health inequities that plague the communities we serve. During this Learning Lab, Dorene Waubanewquay Day, educator, midwife, Indigenous activist, and Erin Tenney, DNP, nurse-midwife and women’s health nurse practitioner, will guide us through the concept of Cultural Safety. We will center the Indigenous patient experience. While this session will focus on Cultural Safety for Indigenous people, the tenets learned can also be applied to all populations.
