Our Indigenous Peoples Patient Circle co-develops a respectful engagement approach to patient-oriented research

In collaboration with Can-SOLVE CKD (SPOR Chronic Disease Network in Chronic Kidney Disease) and their Indigenous Patient Engagement and Research Council, our Indigenous Peoples Patient Circle members are creating a new training platform to enable respectful partnerships with Indigenous People in Research. This learning pathway, named Wabishki Bizhiko Skaanj (wah-bish-kih biish-ih-goo skaa-nch) aims to enhance the Indigenous perspective and support partnerships that consider existing racial biases, Indigenous voices and stories, the impact of colonization on Indigenous health, and culturally safe health research practices.  This learning pathway will ultimately change the way that researchers approach and engage members of the Indigenous Community and it is expected to be adopted by Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) to augment the existing Patient Engagement curriculum.
