Getting There from Here: Realizing Healthcare Equity and Safety for Indigenous Populations in BC held March 4, 2021

Thank you to our panel, Harmony Johnson, Executive Director of the In Plain Sight review,  Rose LeMay, CEO of Indigenous Reconciliation Group, and Christina Krause, CEO of the BC Patient Safety and Quality Council, and participants for making the March 4th event a huge success. The event followed the November 2020 In Plain Sight report that lists 24 recommendations to uphold Indigenous human rights, increase cultural safety in health care, and achieve substantive equality in health outcomes. 70 participants joined to understand more about Indigenous experiences in health care in BC, and to discuss how informatics leaders can improve Indigenous-specific safety and equity with tools such as improved speak-out culture and First Nations-informed data-governance models and performance indicators to drive comprehensive health service planning and evaluation. Panelists provided learning resources for participants. Event materials are available here.

With almost half of all participants completing the session evaluation, 90% of described the event as very good or excellent, and 100% were ready to recommend this event to colleagues and friends. Congratulations to Melanie Wise for winning a Starbuck’s gift card for her evaluation feedback!
