Indigenous Care in Lung Health Webinar Series

Lung Sask is committed to leadership in health professional education, and as part of that commitment is pleased to be hosting this new webinar series. Lung Sask is proud of its ongoing work with Indigenous Peoples with respect to health and lung health and has partnerships with File Hills Qu'Appelle Tribal Council, the University of Saskatchewan, the Lung Association of Manitoba, and the University of Winnipeg in that work.

Lung Sask's network of Indigenous health professionals and Indigenous key opinion leaders is growing and we are so excited to have them participating in this series.

The objectives of this webinar series include:

  1. engaging with health professionals regarding health and lung health issues and diseases like asthma, COPD, TB, and ILD, specifically related to the indigenous experience,
  2. highlighting relevant evidence-based updates, identifying key areas such as diagnosis, treatment, history, care, culture, cultural safety, stigma, and reconciliation, and
  3. increasing the overall awareness about the care of Indigenous peoples in relation to health, and lung health in Canada.

Each webinar in this series is approximately one hour and includes a presentation and Q&A with the presenter.
