Congratulations to Brianna Richardson of Dalhousie University’s School of Nursing! Brianna was the winner of the BRIC NS Student Poster Award at Primary Health Care Research Day 2018 for her poster, “Evaluation of eHealth Resources for Parents of Infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit: A Systematic Review.”
On April 29, 2017 Dr. Ruth Martin-Misener (School of Nursing, Dalhousie University) received a Live More Distinction Award for Research from the Northwood Foundation for her research on nurse practitioners in long-term care.
Few times in life are as fraught with challenge and emotion as the final year of life—whether a person is in the end stages of a fatal illness or is simply failing as they grow older and increasingly frail under the burden of multiple chronic conditions.
Members of the public joined some of Nova Scotia’s leading primary healthcare researchers to help set the direction for future initiatives in this vitally important area of health research. BRIC NS, Building Research for Integrated Primary Healthcare, hosted the citizen-engagement event in the community room of the Barrington Street Superstore in Halifax on April 26, 2017.
