PHO Rounds: Preconception health, pregnancy outcomes and care experiences among women with disabilities in Ontario
About this Event
One in ten women of reproductive age has a physical, sensory, or intellectual disability. Women with disabilities experience significant social, health and health care disparities. Data show that their pregnancy rates are increasing, however, little is known about the preconception and pregnancy outcomes, in addition to the care experiences of women with disabilities. A study was conducted using population-based administrative data to examine the preconception and pregnancy outcomes of women with disabilities in Ontario, in addition to interviews with women with disabilities, physicians, public health nurses and social service providers. The data demonstrates important disparities among women with disabilities and is relevant to the Ontario Public Health Standards, which focus on reducing health inequities related to healthy growth and development. This session will highlight our findings and discuss implications for the development of preconception and prenatal interventions to optimize pregnancy outcomes among women with disabilities.

Intended audience: Public health nurses, managers within public health units, and researchers

The objectives of the webinar are to:

1. Summarize the evidence on the preconception and pregnancy outcomes and care experiences of women with disabilities in Ontario;

2. Discuss the importance of developing and implementing tailored resources for women with disabilities around the time of pregnancy;

3. Identify the roles that public health professionals may play in promoting the health of women with disabilities in the preconception and prenatal periods.

Due to colonization and patriarchal systems, racism, poverty, domestic violence, devaluation and hypersexualization of Indigenous women have become normalized for Indigenous Peoples. In spite of these inequities, Indigenous Peoples are resilient, strong and continue to thrive. The isolation experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic has the potential to increase the rate at which families experience domestic violence, sexism and racism especially since survivors are likely in social isolation with their abusers. This volatile situation has exacerbated the frequency and severity of domestic violence cases (The New York Times, 2020). The Native Women’s Association of Canada’s (NWAC) survey on COVID-19 reveals an extremely troubling trend in increasing incidents of domestic violence being committed against Indigenous women and children. In this webinar, we will discuss findings from NWAC’s survey, how to stay vigilant for signs of domestic violence, and how to be discreet and tactful in your approach to confronting domestic violence as an advocate. Specifically, racism and sexism operate via external power structures which significantly contributes to poor health in certain disadvantaged groups and this will be discussed at length (Bourassa, McKay-McNabb, & Hampton, 2004). Also, poverty and homelessness are major factors in exposing people to threats of violence, crime, incarceration, or exploitation. We will examine the complexities poverty and homelessness pose for these populations within circumstances in a pandemic such as COVID-19, particularly since it has put a considerable strain on homeless shelters and domestic abuse relief homes throughout Canada.

Tue, Jul 7, 2020 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM ED
In December 2015 the Government of Canada launched the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG). Its final report related on June 3, 2019, Reclaiming Power and Place: The Final Report of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, includes 231 individual Calls for Justice directed at governments, institutions, social service providers, industries and all Canadians. Development and implementation of a MMIWG National Action Plan by the Federal Government, has been delayed. In this webinar, we will discuss key findings from the Final Report and concrete recommendations for the Government of Canada’s National Action Plan, informed by the Native Women’s Association of Canada’s (NWAC) National Roundtable on MMIWG held in January 2020. While the establishment of a National Action Plan has experienced delays due to first, the federal election and now, a global pandemic, we are in an even worse crisis. Violence against Indigenous women and children does not stop because of a global health pandemic, in fact, there is troubling evidence supporting quite the opposite. The pandemic is worsening violence against Indigenous women and Indigenous families and communities cannot wait any longer. This presentation will focus on how the Federal Government can act now ensuring full involvement of Indigenous women, girls, Two-Spirit, and gender diverse people, as stated in the National Inquiry’s Final Report.

Despite the documented continued use of traditional healing methods, modalities and its associated practitioners by Indigenous groups across North America, widespread knowledge is elusive amongst most Western trained health professionals and systems. This despite that the over 6 million Indigenous peoples who currently reside in Canada and the United States (US) are most often served by Western systems of medicine. A systematic search of multiple databases was performed, with consequent title and abstract review of articles published on traditional Indigenous medicine in the North American context utilizing an established scoping review framework. The research was is an attempt to catalogue the wide array of published research in the peer-reviewed and grey literature on traditional Indigenous medicine in North America in order to provide an accessible databases for medical practitioners, scholars and communities to better inform practice, policymaking, and research in Indigenous communities specifically through an Indigenous public health lens. The efforts and results of this research will be presented.
