A Spotlight on Nursing Research in the WHO Year of the Nurse and Midwife

Research Day has been cancelled for April 29, 2020

Watch for further information

Nursing Research Day 2020 is a one-day scientific conference aimed at sharing and showcasing the research conducted at the University of Victoria School of Nursing, its college partners and the communities within which they are involved. It brings together students from both the undergraduate and graduate programs, instructors, professors, and community members.

This year, the conference theme has been chosen to highlight the designation by the World Health Organization of 2020 as the “Year of the Nurse and Midwife” in honour of the 200th birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale. This designation is also the culmination of the NursingNow! Campaign, an international three-year effort (2018-2020) to improve health by raising the status of nursing.

The research day will culminate with twin keynotes addresses by André Picard, award-winning health reporter and columnist for The Globe and Mail and Dr. Marilou Gagnon, Associate Professor at the UVic School of Nursing and Co-President of Nursing Observatory, a watchdog organization working on issues related to whistleblowing in nursing. They will discuss the Carolyn Strom case as it relates to freedom of speech, patient safety, professional regulation and nurses' role in our societies.
