Intersections in Rehabilitation

Virtual Speaker Series


This Virtual Speaker Series brings perspectives stemming from Critical Race Theory to inform clinical practice, teaching, and research in rehabilitation sciences. Specifically, the Speaker Series will provide Critical Theoretical frames and research to understand racism, equity, and social-justice in the context of rehabilitation sciences in Canada. Critical perspectives are needed to transform and reframe our understanding of health outcomes for all Canadians.  With regards to Indigenous perspectives, we aim to incorporate the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action #22: “We call upon those who can effect change within the Canadian health-care system to recognize the value of Aboriginal healing practices and use them in the treatment of Aboriginal patients in collaboration with Aboriginal healers and Elders where requested by Aboriginal patients.

Organized by Drs Andrea MacLeod, Cary Brown & Allyson Jones.
