The content was created by Indigenous community members and scholars, some of whom are the on-line instructors. It is designed from an indigenous world view, delivered through the voices and stories of leaders in Indigenous health care. Upon completion, health care practitioners will be equipped with the knowledge and insights to employ an interdisciplinary approach in understanding and supporting indigenous patients.
