- Be aware of the SICG- adapted that was co-developed with FNHA and BCCPC
- Understand how preparing for the SIC is important to provide culturally safer care
This ECHO will review the First Nations Health Authority definitions of cultural safety and cultural humility, to better understand why these are important to SIC. The participants will learn about the SICG- adapted, which was co- developed with FNHA and BCCPC, based on feedback from health care providers and First Nations community members. The adapted tool will be further explored, with emphasis on the ‘preparing’ for SIC and why this pre- conversation is important to provide culturally safer care.
