This session will introduce attendees to the Indigenous Pharmacy Professionals of Canada (IPPC), an association representing Indigenous pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and pharmacy assistants with proof of Indigenous ancestry. IPPC’s purpose and initiatives will be introduced, including reviewing cultural competencies in addressing Indigenous health inequity.

Learners will be invited to review the recommendations and rationale from Indigenous communities regarding Indigenous representation in healthcare and understand the definition, and practice of collaboration strategies, of Indigenous-led and determined perspectives.

Finally, attendees will be introduced to the purpose, role, and immeasurable value that Indigenous Knowledge Keepers and Elders perform in the health and well-being of Indigenous communities and as advisors to non-Indigenous organizations and institutions.

  • Describe the importance of Indigenous perspectives and cultural competencies in bridging health inequities for Indigenous Peoples
  • Define “Indigenous-led and determined” and describe the importance of this element in studying and implementing Indigenous health interventions
  • Detail two strategies to integrate Indigenous-led and determined perspectives into your pharmacy practice
  • Introduce the role that Indigenous Knowledge Keepers play in Indigenous communities, Indigenous health, and as advisors to non-Indigenous organizations and institutions.
