ONLINE COURSE - Cultural Safety

Course Description

Our Introduction to Cultural Safety Training course aims to provide crucial social and historical context on the structural and institutionalized inequalities between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples, which contribute to disparities in Indigenous health. As Kinesiologists practicing in the diverse and multicultural landscape of Turtle Island, it is essential to establish culturally safe patient-practitioner relationships, particularly when working with Indigenous peoples and communities.

This engaging course will delve into Indigenous perspectives on health and wellness, with an emphasis on cultural safety and its relevance to your practice. Through a combination of online lectures and three live sessions, the course will introduce the concept of cultural safety and present strategies for its implementation. Participants will be encouraged to engage in transformative thinking through guided reflection, discussion, and action planning to foster culturally safe relationships and environments.
