CAOS Lecture Series Presents: Dr Lloy Wylie: Culturally Inclusive and Safe Practices

This presentation discusses Indigenous determinants of health and strategies for advancing culturally safe practice, leading students through interactive case discussions regarding health service issues related to Optometry. While one lecture is not sufficient to develop true culturally competent care and can only begin to scratch the surface, we hope that this can be a good step towards developing culturally competent optometry care.

Her teaching and supervision are in health systems and health services research, health care management, community based needs assessment, program evaluation, Aboriginal health, health equity, social determinants of health, Indigenous methodologies, community based research methods, and knowledge translation and exchange between research, policy and practice.
