Over the past 20 years, there have been remarkable strides in providing culturally safe services to First Nations patients, families, and communities, however, there is still much work to be done in ensuring equitable access to culturally safe services.

During this pandemic, health organizations and service providers have faced additional challenges in their efforts to prepare, monitor and respond to COVID-19. Our First Nation partners are juggling an unprecedented number of concerns in accessing safe, and culturally appropriate, services for their community members.

During this webinar, CFHI-FCAS will review the historical and present-day impacts of pandemics on First Nations communities, including how COVID-19 is amplifying existing inequalities, and learn about the work of the FNHMA to support First Nations health managers.

There will be an opportunity for critical self-reflection and discussion, to unpack how health care organizations can address the challenge to provide culturally safe services/supports to First Nations (as allies) during the pandemic.

This online event is hosted by CHFI- FCAS
