Description: In this storytelling-based presentation, participants will have the opportunity to learn about the importance and roles that elders have in First Nations communities and how these experiences are not reflected in their interactions with the healthcare system. The presenter will share stories stemming from his community and personal experiences when working and engaging with elders both Indigenous and non-Indigenous and provide recommendations that healthcare providers can utilize to enhance the healthcare experience of Indigenous elders.
