The Faculty of Nursing, in partnership with Continuing Education, is hosting an institute discussing clinical health research, June 17 to 21. Each day addresses a different theme with experts sharing current information on relevant topics for clinical practice.
“This is a unique event.” explains nursing professor Jody Ralph. “We’ve gathered a diverse group of speakers who will be sharing recent findings and current trends on a range of issues.”
In addition to research methods, the topics include prescribing exercise as treatment, opioid strategy, transgender affirmative health care, indigenous participants in research, and developing a centre of excellence in mental health and addictions.
“Drawing professionals from University of Michigan, Windsor Regional Hospital, Hotel Dieu Grace Health Care, and our own UWindsor faculties — among other industry leaders — we anticipate a very productive few days” says Dr. Ralph.
Faculty, staff, and the general public are invited to attend and can choose single or multiple day enrolment to suit their areas of interest.
The event is also open to UWindsor graduate students as a full course credit. Participants will receive a certificate of completion from Continuing Education.
Meagan Haugh, marketing co-ordinator with continuing education, notes this is the sixth time the institute has been offered.
“It is a great format for bringing students, faculty, industry leaders, and the community together to learn about these relevant issues,” she says.
Further information, including a full list of speakers, their topics, and registration instructions, can be found on the Continuing Education website.
