Understanding & Mending ‘Broken’ Hearts: Linking European Colonization, Indigenous Women’s Heart Health, and resiliency-focused approaches to heart literacy.
The goal of this project is to deepen our understanding about how Indigenous knowledge about well-being can help Indigenous women to understand and manage their heart illness by exploring the culture-related factors that have led to gaps in health promotion, diagnosis, treatment and research which impact Indigenous women. This study will inform our work to educate health practitioners so that the provision of care is culturally safe when working with Indigenous women with cardiovascular disease and stroke.
