Cultural Competence in Health Care: Delivering Culturally Appropriate Care for Tuberculosis in Indigenous Communities

Date: Thursday, March 24, 2022 (World TB Day)
Time: 12:00 p.m. EST
Zoom webinar (free — registration required)

Join us for an Indigenous-led discussion on cultural competence in the context of tuberculosis (TB) care in Canada. Panel lists will take us through the history and current situation of TB care among Indigenous populations in Canada and discuss the importance of providing culturally appropriate TB care in Indigenous communities, as well as the need for developing resources to guide such care. This webinar provides additional perspectives that complement CADTH’s condition level review of TB.
