This document details foundational components for Indigenous Health Systems Transformation and its underlying concepts and terms which in turn help inform the development of the IPHCC OHT Provincial Framework. The purpose for defining these terms is to:
- Define terms from an Indigenous lens and relevance to the work of IPHCC and its members;
- Support the application of equity perspectives as referenced in the Model of Wholistic Health and Wellbeing; and
- Bring clarity and a consistent understanding of the terms defined by government and non-Indigenous providers as they apply to Indigenous settings.
