Learning from Indigenous community partners has contributed to Janet’s personal and professional growth
I’ve always done community partnered work and that’s because I come from a profession that has, as its theoretical foundations, client-centred care. So I would say that working in partnerships has been deeply satisfying in that it’s sort of like my life’s work, in a sense. And I think it’s contributing to a broader society that I would like to see in which citizens have a say in how their society is structured, how the health and social systems are structured, how they operate. So it’s just deeply satisfying, the partnership work, on a personal as well as a professional level.
