EDI BannerEQUITY, DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION SYMPOSIUM

Anti-Indigenous Racism in Health Systems

Thursday, May 27, 2021 12:00pm - 1:00pm MST

Speaker: Wayne Clark, EdD, MA, Executive Director, Indigenous Health Initiatives, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Alberta

Racism within health systems has created significant barriers for Indigenous patients to access quality, equitable care. How health systems are designed and structured, in turn, affects the way Indigenous patients receive care. Historically, health systems have directly and indirectly reinforced the legacy of racial segregation in health care. Indigenous cultural safety and anti-racism training are necessary to address systemic barriers; however, to undo some of the systems that have negatively impacted Indigenous communities, more action is required. This presentation will discuss how ongoing education can build awareness of systemic racism and how system improvements can achieve better health outcomes and meaningful reconciliation.
