ST JOHNS – HEALTH – Partners addressing priority cancer control gaps with and for First Nations, Inuit, Métis communities across Canada are gathering in St. John’s to highlight progress being made in an initiative funded by the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer that will help reduce the cancer burden for these communities and improve the cancer experience for patients.
The forum comes as the Partnership facilitates new work to improve integration of traditional health supports and western models of care with and for First Nations, Inuit and Métis.
“A key focus of the First Nations, Inuit and Métis Action Plan on Cancer Control is the advancement of culturally responsive resources and services, including improved collaboration with traditional practices and knowledge keepers,” said Elisa Levi, Director, First Nations, Inuit and Métis Strategy at the Partnership. “To improve the cultural relevance of cancer control activities, it is essential that those working in cancer control understand that First Nations, Inuit and Métis trust and value their traditional health practices, which are often integral to their health care decisions.”
