At the interface: Indigenous health practitioners and evidence-based practice
With a growing acknowledgement of the importance of Indigenous knowledges and traditional practices to the health and wellbeing of Indigenous peoples, Indigenous health practitioners have increased their efforts to integrate Indigenous and Western systems into their health care practices and policies. In this way, they find themselves at the interface of these two distinct and often contrasting knowledges, evidence, and practices to best address the complex health needs of their Indigenous patient
This webinar highlights findings from the NCCIH's publication, At the interface: Indigenous health practitioners and evidence-based practice. Co-author Dr. Kim van der Woerd and Kylee Swift will summarize key research and policy findings of this publication. Dr. Bernice Downey will then discuss the unique issues related to health practice that accompany working between, and within, these two worlds.
