Indigenous Health, Northern Health (NH) and the National Collaborating Centre for Indigenous Health (NCCIH) present a new video called Building Respectful Relationships in COVID Times.
This video is intended to encourage vaccination uptake and show that the vaccination clinic space is designed to be safe and inclusive for First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples. Using the example of the mass vaccination clinic in Prince George as a model for culturally sensitive care, the video details the collaborative partnership between Northern Health, the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA), the Métis Nation British Columbia (MNBC), the Prince George Native Friendship Centre, and other Indigenous organizations helping with the COVID-19 vaccine rollout.
Healing in pandemic times: Indigenous peoples, stigma, and COVID-19 is intended for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous audiences. The animated video reviews key terms such as stigmatization, stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination in an easily understandable way.
Cultural Safety: Respect And Dignity In Relationships is a 5 minute animated video that introduces cultural safety and related concepts in an easily understandable way. It invites health care providers to participate in making the health system more culturally safe for Indigenous people and families. The video was produced by the Indigenous Health (formerly Aboriginal Health) team of Northern Health.
