Educators’ Forum: Promoting Effective STBBI, HIV, Hepatitis C and Harm Reduction Education with Indigenous People of BC

PAN presents the Educators’ Forum in partnership with the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA). This is a professional development opportunity that gives participants skills and cultural competence in a variety of topics. CATIE, Vancouver Coastal Health, and YouthCO/ Yúusnewas are also partners on the Educators Forum.

The 2020 Educators’ Forum took place March 3 – 4, 2020. Visit Educators’ Forum resources page.

Regional Training

We provide focused training in partnership with regional health authorities and local community-based member organizations to develop regional-specific skills training.

Our in-person Regional Training for Spring 2020 was cancelled due to COVID-19 directives for physical distancing. As an alternative during the COVID-19 physical distancing mandate, we will be hosting a series of online workshop sessions, for frontline service providers of PAN member organizations, with Clinical Supervisor/Instructor/Consultant Vikki Reynolds (vikkireynolds.ca) – PAN Solidarity Group: Belonging. Solidarity. Connection. These online sessions will explore the importance of belonging, solidarity and connection in these challenging and uncertain times. Learn more/register
