Accepting letters of interest until Aug. 16

CPSA is seeking nominations and expressions of interest for membership in our Indigenous Health Advisory Circle. The Circle will focus on listening to and learning from those with lived Indigenous experiences across Alberta. With a focus on collaboration and creating a safe space to share these experiences and ideas, the Circle will help CPSA reflect on our own processes and identify how we can better understand and support Indigenous patients and better guide the physicians who care for them.

“We are on a journey of increasing our awareness and learning about Truth and Reconciliation in an effort to create culturally-safe care spaces and improve health outcomes for Indigenous Peoples,” says Dr. Scott McLeod, CPSA Registrar. “We are fortunate in Alberta to have many influential Indigenous physicians and community leaders we can learn from and partner with as we build a framework together to promote culturally-competent care across our province.”

We are currently seeking interested participants to join us in this important work. Our goal is for Circle membership to represent the diverse perspectives and lived experiences of First Nations, Métis and Inuit Peoples in Alberta.

Interested in joining the Circle or nominating someone?

Nominations opened July 26 and we are accepting letters of interest until Aug. 16, 2021.
