Event description

Description

Engage in critical conversations about the ways in which racism is experienced in practice by those who deliver care and those who receive it.

This event will share the work of the Indigenous Initiatives Committee (IIC), a standing committee of the School of Nursing University of Victoria. The vision of the IIC is to support education and development for students, staff and faculty about Canada’s colonial history, specifically the ongoing effects of colonization for indigenous peoples and the contributions of Indigenous knowledge to the health and wellness of aboriginal peoples. Presenters will highlight education initiatives that prepare our Bachelor of Nursing students to enter into practice understanding their cultural humility journey.

Presenters will extend an invitation to engage in critical conversations about the ways in which racism may be experienced in practice by those who provide care and those who receive care. Using storytelling as a way to connect around shared experiences, presenters hope to create space for conversations about how we may work together to address critical incidents of racism. Presenters include:

  • Maureen Ryan (RN PhD), Assistant Teaching Professor, School of Nursing, University of Victoria
  • Carol McDonald (RN PhD), Professor, School of Nursing, University of Victoria
  • Deborah Thoun (RN PhD), Associate Professor, School of Nursing, University of Victoria

The presenters wish to acknowledge the good work of the Indigenous Initiatives Committee, UVic School of Nursing that informed our presentation.
