UBC 23-24 Indigenous Cultural Safety Interdisciplinary Learning Experience
UBC 23-24 is a new curricular initiative designed by the Centre for Excellence in Indigenous Health (CEIH) that supp-orts and facilitates a more informed and accurate understanding around Indigenous perspectives and contemporary realities within the field of healthcare. This initiative is a response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada Calls to Action 23 and 24 that call for cultural competency training for all heath-care professionals.
