The Call to Action series is a digital series developed in alignment with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s health action items. The series is intended as a primer for physicians and healthcare professionals looking for impactful and clinically relevant information about Indigenous Health.
The series has been developed with inspiration from the Seven-Grandfather Teachings*. These teaching form the foundation of an Indigenous way of knowing and living life in a Good Way. Together they inform the relationships one has with themselves, their community, the environment and all of Creation.
Grounded in these teachings, each session will build on the next and assist physicians in expanding their knowledge and understanding of Indigenous Health concepts and issues. Sessions will focus on a truthful telling of Indigenous history and reality, traditional Indigenous medicine and world views and discuss ways (cultural safety, partnership and allyship) to improve care for Indigenous patients and communities.
