Dr Carole Estabrooks to be inducted into the

International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame

We'd like to congratulate Dr Carole Estabrooks for being selected as an inductee into the International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame. She is being recognized for her lifetime achievements in and contributions to research and for mentoring future nurse researchers. She will be honoured at Sigma Theta Tau International’s Nursing Research Congress this summer in Melbourne, Australia. 

We have secured

Funding for VOICES Committee

We are extremely excited to announce that our citizen engagement committee has secured funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research's Patient-Oriented Research Collaboration Grant. This grant (ranked #1!) enables us to move forward on areas of collaboration identified by the committee as high priority. Planned activities in this grant include team training on citizen engagement and a priority setting exercise with VOICES members and our decision maker stakeholders. The grant enables TREC to remain committed to full partnership with all stakeholders and the successful integration of family caregivers, long term care residents, and persons living with dementia, into our larger research team.
