Voices from the Field - Episode 2 - Birthing experiences of First Nations women from northern and remote communities

 

This episode provides an overview of a community-driven research project underway on the birthing experiences of First Nations women from Norway House Cree Nation in northern Manitoba. The project, spearheaded by Dr. Jaime Cidro of the University of Winnipeg, looks at some of the multiple social, emotional, financial, and cultural burdens faced by First Nations women in Norway House Cree Nation when they are required to leave their communities to give birth. In this podcast you will hear how this project came about, what research questions it will address, and why bringing maternity programs and birthing back to the community should be a priority.

Voices from the Field - Episode 03 - Indigenous Physicians Lisa Richardson and Jason Pennington win the 2017 Dr. Thomas Dignan Indigenous Health Award

 

In this episode you will hear from Indigenous Drs. Lisa Richardson and Jason Pennington who have been awarded the 2017 Dr. Thomas Dignan Indigenous Health Award from Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Drs. Richardson and Pennington spoke to the work underway at the Office of Indigenous Medical Education at the University of Toronto.

 

Specifically, they address three areas of their work:

  1. They are seeking to recruit more Indigenous students as health care providers (starting with outreach to high school students) and they describe how they will be supporting them through their medical school journey (from admissions through to graduation)
  2. They talk about the ways they are working to strengthen Indigenous health curriculum for all medical students, including aspects of Indigenous medicine and history, the social determinants of health, and Indigenous conceptualizations and experiences around health care and health care provision. For them anti-racism, anti-oppression and experiential learning play a significant part of this Indigenous health education curriculum.
  3. They explain how they strive to ensure a safer learning environment for Indigenous medical students - such as through the inclusion of Elders in-residence, counselling services, participation in community and cultural activities, and the hiring of more Indigenous faculty.
