Quebec’s order of nurses looking to combat systemic racism against Indigenous communities

The Ordre des infirmières et infirmiers du Québec (OIIQ) says it wants to address systemic racism in the health care network in relation to Indigenous people.

In a statement, the Order says it wants to foster nursing practices that promote humility, cultural safety and promote partnership and trust.

OIIQ President Luc Mathieu explains the tragic circumstances surrounding the death of Joyce Echaquan in a Joliette hospital a little over a year ago sounded the death knell for many in the network.
