Hearing Our Voices: An Indigenous Women’s Reproductive Health online web-curriculum. This curriculum is designed to communicate the experience of Indigenous women in their own voices to residents and other health care and allied health care practitioners who care for Indigenous women in a reproductive health capacity. These online modules aim to improve your ability to care for Indigenous women in Canada by increasing your cultural intelligence and knowledge for the Indigenous social determinants of health and by learning how to incorporate culturally appropriate care into your practice. This web-curriculum is part of a research study that is being conducted at the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, Lakehead University, the University of Toronto, and the Thunder Bay Regional Health Research Institute.
The purpose of this study is to assess whether a web-based curriculum can improve resident, health care and allied health care practitioners’ understanding of the social determinants of Indigenous women’s reproductive health. The curriculum was developed by eleven Indigenous women’s organizations from across the country, with support from the research team. First Nations, Inuit, and Métis women are the foremost experts in terms of providing the social, cultural, and historical context in which the practice of Obstetrics and Gynaecology takes places for Indigenous women in Canada. As such, we have given Indigenous women a means to shape an Indigenous health curriculum in women’s reproductive health.
