PHIL 1350 Culture, Health, and Social Justice on Turtle Island
Recent headlines attest to the fact that Indigenous people in Canada in general receive inadequate healthcare and are subject to neglect and abuse at the hands of those entrusted to provide that care. Some, like Joyce Echaquan and Brian Sinclair, sought medical treatment only to experience racism from caregivers and ultimately died in the hospital. This course explores the theory, research, and professional expectations regarding cultural competency, safety, and humility with respect to the nursing and healthcare of Indigenous people and communities. Throughout the course, we will consider how colonialism factors into the health disparities of contemporary Indigenous communities, employing philosophical skills, such as self-reflection and critical thinking, to promote social justice in the care of Indigenous people in Turtle Island.
