On Sep. 29, 2021, we published
BCCNM's Commitment to Action:Constructive disruption to Indigenous-specific racism amongst B.C. Nurses and Midwives. This document was a direct response to the recommendations by Dr. Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond, laid out in the
report of her findings from the
In Plain Sight: Addressing Indigenous-specific Racism and Discrimination in B.C. Health Care investigation.
In our action plan, we identified three broad areas of focus—systems, behaviours and beliefs—and established specific goalsin response to eight of the report's recommendations. One year on, we are pleased to provide a progress update on each action item.
