To work towards the facilitation of culturally meaningful care, Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH), and the UBC Faculty of Medicine, Digital Emergency Medicine (DigEM), through the inter-Cultural Online health Network (iCON), jointly created a video and discussion guide featuring First Nations and Aboriginal Traditional Healers.
The purpose of this video and discussion guide are to:
- Increase the understanding of the role of traditional healing and the work of traditional practitioners
- Encourage the integration of traditional healing into the health care plans of First Nations and Aboriginal patients
- Support positive health care experiences through a culturally competent care framework.
