This is an introductory, three-hour course that is for individuals working in health care (ex. front-line staff, practitioners, volunteers, students). Learners will begin the training by engaging with the elements that are important to adopting cultural safety, including awareness, sensitivity, competency and humility. Unique to this training is the learner-centric approach in which there are several simulations featured, whereby learners can respond to interactions between health care staff and Indigenous patients. These simulations demonstrate situations where cultural safety may either be compromised or upheld in health-based settings The training also includes other interactive pieces, such as a pre- and post-assessment, videos, and reflection check-points. Users can start, pause and resume the training at any time.
