Educational Tools to Support Cultural Safety

In 2015, Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH), and the UBC Faculty of Medicine, Digital Emergency Medicine (DigEM), through iCON, jointly created a video and facilitation guide featuring First Nations and Indigenous Traditional Practitioners, to share knowledge and promote culturally safe care.

The purpose of the cultural safety training 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 Indigenous patients;
  • Support positive health care experiences through a culturally safe care framework.
