Course Development at The University of British Columbia Concerning Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology for People of First Nations, Métis and Inuit Heritage

Although many speech-language pathologists (SLPs) and audiologists are providing service to people of First Nations, Métis and Inuit heritage in Canada, most have received minimal training concerning culturally competent (safe and relevant) practice in this context. As a first step in addressing this educational gap, the School of Audiology and Speech Sciences (SASS) at the University of British Columbia inaugurated a course for final year students in audiology and speech-language pathology in 2009. This paper outlines the background for the course and the course itself, as it has developed in response to student and community evaluations.
