TR and Diversity


In the healthcare context, most care providers serve patients, residents and clients alongside other care providers that are different than them in significant respects. We all hear that we should be ‘culturally sensitive’ and ‘culturally competent’, but what does this really mean?
In this interactive half-day workshop, we will analyze 11 stories that aim to illuminate what it means to provide safe and effective care to diverse populations and learn about a variety of printable and sharable tools that can be used in your practice to provide care to diverse population groups.


Learning objectives:

        • Analyze varying stories about diversity related issues in health care to illuminate new perspectives and insights into our growing client populations
        • Integrate and apply the themes and solutions from team discussions and self-reflection into the work of recreational therapists
        • Evaluate a variety of tools aimed to aid healthcare professionals provide high quality care to diverse populations groups


Session Speaker/Facilitator:

Sana Fakih is the Leader of Diversity Services at Fraser Health. Over the past five years Sana has been working with her team to increase the capacity of healthcare professionals to provide safe and equitable care to our diverse communities in British Columbia. She has her Master’s Degree in Public Health.


The Education Session is provided free of charge for BCTRA members.
