The North West Regional Palliative Care Program, St. Josephs’s Care Group, and the Centre for Education and Research on Aging and Health (CERAH), Lakehead University, invite you to join an interdisciplinary hub team in exploring Indigenous and Westernized ways of knowing in caring for Indigenous peoples who are seriously ill.

Co-chaired by Holly Prince and Dr. Kevin Bezanson, this series will explore how two-eyed seeing, equity- and trauma-informed approaches to care can create opportunities for culturally safer care and identify current resources and tools available to support caring for Indigenous peoples who are seriously ill. Participants are invited to bring real patient cases to a session to discuss challenges and strengths to care with the team and their peers.
