The content was designed from an Indigenous world view, delivered through the voices and stories of Indigenous community members and scholars. Health care practitioners who complete the course will have the knowledge, skills and insights to implement an inter-professional approach to understanding and supporting the wellness of Indigenous patients, families and communities.
