Title Indigenous Healthcare Education and Practice: Applying Digital Teaching and Learning Resources to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada's Calls to Action
Background/Purpose Guided by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada's (TRC) Calls to Action on education, health, and education for Reconciliation, this project focused on creating an online digital collection that enables healthcare learners to apply the TRC's Calls to Action into their current study and future practice.
Methods This project was designed as a collaborative partnership between learners, practitioners, researchers, and community members and was guided by the principle of two-eyed seeing. This partnership informed the design, development, evaluation, and dissemination of the digital collection.
Results The seven themes represented in the digital collection include (a) Historical Perspectives of Indigenous Peoples in Canada and Implications for Health Outcomes, (b) Biases, Racism, and Discrimination in Healthcare, (c) Indigenous Ways of Knowing and Healthcare, (d) Healthcare Rights, (e) Healthcare Services, (f) Culturally Safe Healthcare, and (g) Intersections between Education and Healthcare. Each theme has been developed into an open-access online module. A module including six pieces of artwork and two supplementary resources were also developed. The digital resources can be found at Results of a sharing circle with Indigenous Elders and a pre/post-program survey with healthcare learners indicated that this resource is a valuable learning opportunity for education and practice.
Discussion This project highlights the value of collaborative approaches for healthcare education and offers an innovative resource for translating the TRC's Calls to Action into teaching and learning. Providing community-informed, accessible educational resources for learners is one way healthcare educators can contribute to the journey towards Reconciliation and health equity.
