CSHBC requests registrant feedback on CSHBC’s new standard for Indigenous Cultural Safety, Cultural Humility, & Anti-Racism

CSHBC is committed to supporting change to ensure the provision of culturally safe health care for Indigenous peoples.

In September 2022, CSHBC adopted an Indigenous Cultural Safety, Cultural Humility, & Anti-Racism Standard of Practice (PDF). In conjunction with the Standard, the College has communicated to registrants principles to follow when incorporating the standard and resources for learning.

To further aid in our collective learning, the College is requesting CSHBC registrants to participate in an online survey about Indigenous-specific topics and your current cultural humility and anti-racism practices. The survey will take 10-15 minutes to complete and will provide CSHBC with important information on how to provide additional support and guidance for speech and hearing health professionals to meet the requirements of the Practice Standard.

Pivotal Research Inc., an independent research firm, has been commissioned to conduct this work. Your responses to this survey will be kept confidential by Pivotal Research and will not be reported or shared at the individual level with the College. All reporting will be in aggregate across the professions CSHBC regulates and in conjunction with other health professions.

On February 22, 2023, you will receive an email from CSHBC with a secure link to complete the survey online.

The collection of personal information in this survey is permitted under section 26(c) and (e) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

For technical support with the survey, or if you have questions about how survey information is being collected, used, or protected, please contact Pivotal Research by email: [email protected].
