Indigenous Cultural Safety Training: Advanced illness, palliative care and grief
Everyone working in healthcare has a responsibility to contribute to respectful care that honours and includes cultural traditions and beliefs. When culture and traditions are enabled, the person who is ill and their family feel heard and supported.
Living with an advanced illness is difficult for patients, their families, friends, and members of their community. Lack of cultural knowledge or failure to ask what is important to a patient and family, impacts care, makes the experience more difficult, and grief more complex.
In these modules, you will hear from Indigenous Peoples about their values, beliefs, and views about care, explore barriers to culturally safer care, and learn how to address these barriers in your role.
Thank you. Miigwetch.
