Project Summary

In response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada: Calls to Action and Place and Promise: The UBC Plan, health science programs, including the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, have incorporated greater opportunities for cultural competency learning. Traditional quantitative assessment methods are usually ineffective or not practical for this subject material, while currently used qualitative methods are either not validated, resource-intensive and not sustainable, or cannot be easily modified to fit different classroom formats including large or online lectures. The purpose of this project will be to develop, implement, and evaluate a modified reflexive photography assessment for cultural competency learning in the Entry-to-Practice Doctor of Pharmacy program. This project builds from existing qualitative assessment used in the pharmacy course PHAR 457: Pharmaceutical Care in Aboriginal Health. This assessment will be designed for cultural competency learning for any health discipline program, as well as utilization in online or blended learning environments.
