Contraception Coercion: How do we ensure informed, coercion-free, prior shared decision making in our busy practices?

Join Dr. Rebekah Eatmon (BCCFP Indigenous Physician Lead) and Dr. Unjali Malhotra (FNHA Medical Director of Women’s Health) for a discussion on contraception coercion and how family physician can help to ensure informed, coercion-free decision making related to contraception for Indigenous patients. This webinar is the third in the Cultural Safety and Humility in Family Medicine Series, which the BCCFP launched last fall.


Canada has a long history of forced and coerced sterilization. Though these explicit eugenic laws and policies have been repealed, the racist and discriminatory attitudes that gave rise to them are still present in Canadian society.

This webinar will offer insights into the Canadian Senate’s recent report on forced and coerced sterilization of persons in Canada, and explore how ongoing racist and discriminatory attitudes continue to effect the reproductive rights of Indigenous women.
