Providing Culturally Sensitive Care for First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Clients
February 13, 2019
12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time
In person option: 2 College St. Room 116, Toronto, M5G 1K3
The January Issue of Healthcare Management Forum features articles on Indigenous health in Canada. The articles reflect the diverse experiences of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis authors working to improve care in their communities and across the country. Topics include creating culturally sensitive care, Indigenous approaches to leadership, and truth and reconciliation.
This new Management Science Rounds series was developed to bring to life the great ideas and practices presented in Healthcare Management Forum and consider how local leaders are working to advance them. In this second installment of the Rounds, Métis healer Elder Little Brown Bear (Ernest Matton) will share how the Toronto East Health Network and Michael Garron Hospital developed its Aboriginal Healing Program. The Aboriginal Healing Program offers culturally appropriate education circles and programs that promote a new, healthier, and more spiritual lifestyle. This will be presented as an in-person session and webinar. In-person attendees will be invited to participate in a smudging ceremony at the start of the event.

Métis healer Elder Little Brown Bear (Ernest Matton) blends Indigenous teachings with mainstream western practices in an award-winning approach to addictions treatment for Indigenous and non-Indigenous individuals, and the professionals working with them. Community members in Matton’s Toronto-based healing program embark on intensive healing journeys from deep emotional and mental trauma. He purposely has no wait list, and intakes have more than doubled over the past six years. His accolades include investiture to the Order of Ontario; a national Centre for Addiction and Mental Health’s Difference Makers award; and a Governor General’s Sovereign Medal for Outstanding Indigenous Leadership.
