Learn how you can support cultural safety and wellness in health care on National Indigenous Peoples Day.
At Fraser Health, we are committed to advancing cultural safety in health care so all people - including Indigenous people - have equal access to high quality, culturally appropriate care.
In July 2015, Fraser Health signed a Declaration of Commitment to advance cultural humility and cultural safety in health care for First Nations in B.C.
You have a role to play in advancing cultural humility and safety at Fraser Health.
National Indigenous Peoples Day is an opportunity for Fraser Health professionals to learn more about the Indigenous peoples we care for and to learn what culturally safe health care means to them.
