Northern Health Survey seeks feedback from Indigenous residents of region

How to improve their services and provide for improvement on the quality of care for Indigenous people in the North, is the focus for a survey currently underway with Northern Health.

The Health Agency looking to hear from Indigenous residents of the region on a range of areas related to health care and experiences at area facilities.

Key to the study is six elements that look to explore further:

Ensure meaningful participation of Indigenous people to improve Northern Health services 

Ensure our workforce is more representative of Indigenous people in Northern BC 

Support all of Northern Health learning through Indigenous cultural safety education 

Increase accessibility to culturally safe and identity-affirming health care services 

Improve Indigenous self-identification processes 

Address the inequities in our health care system, including who owns the rights to any data collected from or about Indigenous people by Northern Health

The health agency posted their call for participation through their Prince Rupert focused social media stream.

Further background on the engagement opportunity and  access the survey can be found here.  

The deadline for participation is November 30th.
