Northern and Indigenous Health and Healthcare


A new, peer-reviewed, open access resource, Northern and Indigenous Health and Healthcare, has just been launched.

It is organized and edited by the University of the Arctic Thematic Network on Northern Nursing Education, and supported by the Norwegian Centre for International Cooperation in Education; the University of Saskatchewan; UiT The Arctic University of Norway; and the Rebus Foundation.

The provision of northern health care entails many unique challenges and circumstances that are rarely represented in mainstream health sciences education.

This OpenEd Resource provides accessible content on health and health care from a northern perspective for the growing number of health professionals being educated in northern communities.

The OpenEd Resource is divided into five themes:

  • Community Health in Northern and Indigenous Communities
  • Social Determinants and Structural Impacts on Northern and Indigenous Health
  • Culture and Health
  • Innovations in Northern Health Care
  • Professional Practice in Northern and Indigenous Communities

You can read the Northern and Indigenous Health and Healthcare here.
