Mobilizing Indigenous Knowledge for Culturally Safe Research, Education and Practice

The ACHH Initiative is working with communities and clinicians to bridge the gap in our understanding of Indigenous children’s pain and hurt and improve healthcare experiences.

About the Initiative

The ACHH Initiative is working with communities and clinicians to bridge the gap in our understanding of Indigenous children’s pain and hurt. We hope to design tools for culturally appropriate communication and treatment.

For Academics

Academic & Health Professionals

There’s lots of ways to improve the healthcare experience for Indigenous children and youth. Education is the first step! Learn more about ACHH’s research and the FIRST Approach developed for health professionals.

If we only treat one thing such as our body, and our spirit isn’t healthy and our minds and thoughts aren’t healthy, then how can you be healthy?

Listened to Maria Campbell yesterday who said Indigenous Health work in institutions is always going to be hard & we have to be warriors. We have our responsibilities & will do our work. But the institutions that celebrate & benefit from that work also have responsibilities. https://twitter.com/RicharLisa/status/1352426358899691522
