Part of a series of 4 selected Indigenous Relationship and Cultural Safety modules designed to empower those working with First Nations, Inuit and Métis people with the knowledge needed to provide culturally appropriate, person-centred care. The information is relevant to all Canadians, as the courses promote greater awareness of First Nation, Inuit and Métis history, culture, and the health landscape. The course content is being pulled from Cancer Care Ontario self-learning modules that will be presented in a group environment to provide a stronger understanding of the material through interactive presentations.
