cOnnecT Day takes place on November 5, 2022. Plan to join us for a day of learning, reflecting, and connecting. This year, speakers discuss the importance of delivering anti-racist culturally safe care.
Harmony Johnson, vice president of Indigenous Wellness & Reconciliation at Providence Health Care, joins us to reflect on the In Plain Sight report and its calls to action to improve equity in health care. She will help us to consider the implications for OTs by building a practical understanding of what Indigenous specific racism is, how it has been woven into health care in BC, and what we can do to make changes in our practice.
UBC–OSOT Professor and Department Head Sue Forwell will share an update on the exciting expansion of the occupational therapy program at UBC’s Faculty of Medicine and their efforts on Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.
