Making Canada’s health care system more culturally responsive to Aboriginal Peoples
The Health Council of Canada just issued a new report on making the country’s urban health care systems more culturally responsive to Aboriginal Peoples. The report (Empathy, dignity, and respect: Creating cultural safety for Aboriginal people in urban health care) captures the results of a series of roundtable discussions across Canada earlier this year with individuals from organizations delivering health care services to First Nations, Mètis and Inuit people in urban settings.
This initiative was inspired in part by the Environics Institute’s Urban Aboriginal Peoples Stud (UAPS), and the Health Council invited Executive Director Keith Neuman (among others) to publish a blog post commenting on the just-issued report.
