2018/19 NCCIH Webinar Resources Now Online

The NCCIH has increasingly been using webinars as knowledge translation resources. From occasional webinars held in previous years, the NCCIH is now offering, alone and in partnership with other organizations, several webinars annually as part of its webinar series. The 2015 inaugural webinar in this series, a presentation by Dr. Charlotte Loppie from the University of Victoria on “Anti-Aboriginal Racism in Canada: A Social Determinant of Health,” was attended by over 240 people, including several international participants.

Since then, we have held another eleven webinars, ranging on topics related to Metis identity, cultural safety, reconciliation and public health, the need for health humanities in unsettling colonial medicine, children’s rehabilitation services, anti-Indigenous racism in healthcare delivery, the legacy of Indian hospitals, and the importance of Indigenous languages as a determinant of health.
