These are the three learning objectives we hope to achieve:
- Decolonizing the physician - identify and recognize challenges in utilizing Canadian health services for Indigenous people.
- Unpacking the suitcase - stimulate the physician to reflect on the ideas of White power and privilege, racism, and oppression in the context of Indigenous wellbeing
- Providing tools - To avoid Indigenous health as a cognitive exercise and develop educational and workplace strategies to address challenges and issues Indigenous people face in the health system.
