Integrating the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action in nursing curricula

CASN TRC Workshop Series

Spring session full – Fall registration will open summer 2023


COURSE DESCRIPTION

The Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR) Indigenous Research Chairs in Nursing are co-designing and co-delivering a five-part workshop series to support anti-racist and decolonial practices in nursing education as a collective response to implementing the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action.

The first three workshops focus on Indigenous specific racism, cultural humility, and cultural safety, exploring how educators play a crucial role in developing culturally safe practitioners. The final two workshops present case studies with exemplary approaches for responding to Calls to Action 23 and 24 in nursing education.

The series will cover the following topics:

  • Workshop 1. Indigenous specific racism
  • Workshop 2. Cultural humility
  • Workshop 3. Cultural safety
  • Workshop 4. Taking Responsibility for the History We Have All Inherited: Integrating the Truth of Colonialization
  • Workshop 5. Implementing Calls to Action in Nursing Curricula
