RFP Closing Date & Time: March 12, 2021

1.0 Invitation

The Indigenous Primary Health Care Council (the “IPHCC”) is inviting Consultants to submit a proposal for Instructional Design Services.

2.0 About the Indigenous Primary Health Care Council

The Indigenous Primary Health Care Council (IPHCC) is a new Indigenous- governed culture-based and Indigenous-informed organization. Its key mandate is to support the advancement and evolution of Indigenous primary health care services provision and planning throughout Ontario. Membership currently includes Aboriginal Health Access Centres (AHAC), Aboriginal governed, Community Health Centres (ACHC), other Indigenous governed providers and partnering Indigenous health researchers and scholars.

Our Vision:

We are Indigenous health care organizations that operate in cities, First Nations, rural and remote areas across Ontario, improving health care disparities for the people. Like historic alliances, such as the Council of Fires, we have united, for the sole purpose of working collaboratively, collectively, and deliberately so that the health and well-being of the Indigenous People in Ontario, across each generation, is restored and assured. Our Model of Wholistic Health and Wellbeing places culture at the center as we believe our cultural effects all aspects of healing; Emotional, Mental, Physical and Spiritual.

Our Mission:

We promote and develop models of Indigenous primary health care provision that support the health and well-being of Indigenous peoples.

3.0 Background

Indigenous Cultural Safety Program:

We are a provincial program that works to enable transformative and decolonizing change within individuals, organizations, and systems. In collaboration with IPHCC members and our partners, we raise awareness about anti-Indigenous bias and stereotyping and collaborate with health system leaders to help them take effective action toward improving Indigenous cultural safety within their organizations and across the health system.

Current State:

The Indigenous Primary Health Care Council (IPHCC) has launched an Indigenous Cultural Safety Strategy (ICS) to guide the work of the ICS Program over the next three years. As part of this strategy, the IPHCC is developing Ontario-specific ICS curriculum that centers the resiliency and realities of Indigenous communities from Ontario and reflects the health system change that is underway. IPHCC has finalized the curriculum framework and learning objectives and is now developing content. These online modules will be interactive and include audiovisual components, activities, and self-assessment quizzes to facilitate a transformative learning experience for participants. We are aiming to soft launch two of the five modules in late spring 2021 and will gather feedback from our partners to strengthen it further before the final modules are designed, and the full curriculum is launched broadly across the province.

In addition to our ICS curriculum, the IPHCC has developed a toolkit to support mainstream organizations to create safer environments for Indigenous clients, staff, students, and health care providers. The toolkit includes:

  • Principles for creating greater cultural safety
  • Strategies and tips
  • Elements of successful partnerships with Indigenous organizations
  • Potential ways to support Indigenous participation during the COVID-19 response

We are at the beginning stage of the instructional design process for this toolkit.

Supporting Materials:

ICS Curriculum: The vendor will be provided with a word document that includes learning objectives and written content for each of the two modules. The documents will be similar in length to that of the toolkit.

Toolkit: The vendor will be provided with the toolkit, which is a 29-page Word Document with minimal graphics. The document is currently available at: https://www.iphcc.ca/publications/toolkits/Ne-iikaanigaana/

4.0 Services Required

Scope of Services and Deliverables:

ICS Curriculum: The consultant will be responsible for designing and developing two e-learning modules that meet the learning objectives. The primary audience for these modules is health care providers and staff who work in the mainstream health system in Ontario.

The proposed length for each module is between 20-30 minutes.

Deliverables:

  • Design strategy including a proposed interactive, instructional approach for the module.
  • Storyboard with appropriate media and visuals.
  • Prototype of module.
  • Final module (SCORM compliant) for use in a Learning Management System.

Toolkit: The Consultant will be responsible for designing and developing an e-learning module to inform and educate about the core concepts contained in the Ne’iikaaniganna Toolkit – Creating a Safer Environment. The primary audience for this module is senior staff within organizations who are advising and/or leading organizational change initiatives. Often, these staff are located within equity, diversity, and inclusion or human resources departments.

The proposed length for the module is between 20-30 minutes.

Deliverables:

  • Design strategy including learning objectives and a proposed interactive, instructional approach for the module.
  • Storyboard with appropriate media and visuals.
  • Prototype of module.
  • Final module (SCORM compliant) for use in a Learning Management System.

NOTE: The IPHCC is looking to build longer-term relationships with consultants who can support the work of the Indigenous Cultural Safety program. Should the successful consultant meet the deliverables required within the scope of this proposal, and there is the potential to embark on a mutually respectful working relationship, there are several more modules that will be rolled out over the 2021/22 fiscal year and beyond that the consultant may be interested in.
