Indigenous Cultural Awareness Workshop
Indigenous Cultures Awareness Workshop is a two-day workshop that aims to bridge understanding between health-care providers and their Indigenous patients and patients' families. Participation by all staff working for Winnipeg Regional Health Authority is encouraged.
This two-day workshop introduces a basic knowledge of the world views, spiritual and cultural values of Indigenous peoples, highlights historical and contemporary issues that influence Indigenous peoples, and honours the rich diversities within Indigenous communities.
What you can learn:
- Increase awareness and understanding of Indigenous cultures in a health-care setting
- Increase ability to provide culturally competent and proficient care
- Gain knowledge to build a culturally respectful workplace
Indigenous Cultures Awareness Workshop (ICAW) is the base workshop offered by WRHA Indigenous Health and acts as a foundation on which participants can grow their knowledge by taking additional workshops featured in this booklet.
