The Role of Practitioners in Indigenous Wellness

University of Saskatchewan, Continuing Education in Rehabilitation Science

January 15 - April 15, 2021

This course is a collaborative project developed by the Division of Continuing Medical Education, College of Medicine, and Continuing Education in Rehabilitation Science, University of Saskatchewan, with assistance from the Canadian Medical Protective Association. The content was created by Indigenous community members and scholars, some of whom are the on-line instructors. It is designed from an indigenous world view, delivered through the voices and stories of leaders in Indigenous health care. Upon completion, health care practitioners will be equipped with the knowledge and insights to employ an interdisciplinary approach in understanding and supporting indigenous patients.

The course is suitable for health care professionals (e.g., physicians, nurses, clinicians, physical therapists, etc.) who directly support indigenous people as part of their patient population. Enrollment is open to health care practitioners across Canada.

This online course is self-directed. Participants are expected to complete the online modules at their own pace, within their registered twelve-week session. Sessions will be available to commence on January 15, 2021.
