April 7th, 2022 | KB Cultural Safety, Resources Launch

*NEW* practitioner tools & resources are available to support and enhance our practice of Indigenous cultural safety and humility in Kootenay Boundary. The provision of culturally safe care is one of eight attributes of the delivery of care through the Primary Care Network. 

All practitioners and health care teams are encouraged to visit kbculturalsafety.org >, to explore these new resources including 'Cultivating Culturally Safe Care in Your Clinic' a practitioner toolkit, an inventory of Aboriginal patient resources, and more. 

We hope these resources provide a stepping stone to help you build approaches to care in your practice that contribute to cultural safety for all Indigenous patients in Kootenay Boundary. 

In a good spirit,
Sage Laboucan, KB Aboriginal Health Coordinator 
Dr. Leah Seaman, KB Cultural Safety Working Group Physician Lead
