CPCNA WEBINAR – A Critical Gap: Improving Palliative Care for Indigenous Peoples

September 14, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT

The CPCNA webinar series is taking a summer break, but mark your calendar for this informative session in September!

CPCNA is pleased to present Holly Prince HBSW, MSW (Phd. Candidate) presenting on improving palliative care for Indigenous Peoples. In this webinar you will explore challenges and barriers that limit appropriate healthcare for Indigenous Peoples, identify ways healthcare providers can become allies to Indigenous Peoples to deliver culturally safer care and learn about newly developed tools and resources to enhance culturally safe palliative care for Indigenous people.

Indigenous Peoples have limited access to palliative care when facing advanced illness, end of life, and bereavement in Canada. When access is achieved, the Western medical approach is often at odds with Indigenous ways of knowing and commonly does not respond with culturally safe care. In response to this need, the Canadian Virtual Hospice collaborated with Indigenous Elders, scholars, healthcare providers, patients, and families from across Canada to co-develop interactive tools for community-based education to enhance the delivery of culturally safer care for Indigenous Peoples.

REGISTER NOW: Wednesday, September 14 1200-1300 Eastern time
