Using a two-eyed seeing approach to address Aboriginal children’s pain
Dalhousie Nursing’s Margot Latimer is dedicated to improving access to health care and treatment for the Indigenous population.
“First Nations Children and other Indigenous children are the least likely to get adequate health care yet they have the highest rates of all pain-related conditions, both emotional and physical,” Dr. Latimer explains. This makes them a priority group because those conditions impact their ability to go to school and develop socially, emotionally and physically, and to achieve optimum wellness from a wholistic perspective.
