BCCNM launches Action Plan to address Indigenous-specific racism in health care


Oct 6, 2021

We are pleased to share our organization's action plan, BCCNM's Commitment: Constructive disruption to Indigenous-specific racism amongst B.C. Nurses and Midwives. The release of the In Plain Sight report last year underscored the urgent need for all partners in the health-care system to take swift and decisive action to dismantle the systemic racism that has led to such poor health outcomes for First Nations, Métis and Inuit (Indigenous) Peoples. BCCNM's action plan reflects our commitment to enacting recommendations put forth in the report and lays out a roadmap for BCCNM to follow as we work to make the health-care system culturally safe.
