Getting them hooked: Applying the Psychology of Curiosity, Imagination, and Motivation to Health Professions Education

What is curiosity and why is it so compelling? Is it a need (‘having a thirst for knowledge’)? A motivation (‘never lose a holy curiosity’)? A destructive impulse (‘curiosity killed the cat’)? Can it be generated? And, more importantly, can it be used to motivate learning?

This presentation introduces the psychology of curiosity and proposes that curiosity, coupled with imagination, can be the ‘spark’ that creates optimal motivation for information seeking, exploration, and learning in health professions contexts.

Building a Two Row Ideology with Western Medicine and Indigenous Knowledge

Canada has a world class healthcare system. However, the state of Indigenous health is more comparable to that of a third world country. Why is this and how did we get here? The fundamental health question we must answer is “What can we learn from our past about our cross-culture relationship that will inform the present and define our future?” The presenters will discuss their path to advocate for health equity for indigenous populations as well as the concept of building a Two Row Ideology bridge and establish sustainable collaboration/partnership between western medicine and indigenous knowledge keepers, we will look at the importance of knowledge sharing,  with respect, to create the paradigm shift required to establish a strong, educated, and healthy indigenous people today who will prosper tomorrow and for the next Seven Generations.
