What does the evidence tell us about the effects of oppression, loss of bodily autonomy, and discrimination during health care encounters on short- and long-term well-being? Does type of provider affect experiences of reproductive and perinatal services? Should caesarean reduction be the goal? Do Black and Indigenous lives matter to midwifery and medical providers? What do service users say? How do providers action their beliefs about human rights?

This session will explore findings and insights from participatory research on quality, safety, risk, and present anti-racist actions, models, and accountability tools that clinicians and health systems can adopt to accept responsibility and enhance quality and safety.
