Cultural Safety Mindfulness During a Pandemic
During this time of global pandemic, there are some important principles to be mindful of when working with Indigenous Peoples and Communities. These principles take into consideration the results of the colonial history and current realities as well as looking to the teachings found in unique and rich cultural perspectives. We know that Indigenous Peoples and Communities, in general, deal at an escalated scale with vulnerabilities associated with poor health and with economic challenges. We cannot assume that measures put in place in the general Canadian community will be easily transferable to Indigenous settings. It is our hope that some of the principles and history shared here will be helpful for rural physicians, their teams and systems to work in culturally-safe ways.
