CANADA RESEARCH CHAIR IN NURSING:HEALTH OUTCOMES AND QUALITY OF CARE

The Faculty of Nursing at the University of Alberta seeks to nominate a Tier II Canada Research Chair in Health Outcomes and Quality of Care. We are seeking a highly productive individual with a strong grounding in the quantitative sciences, e.g., epidemiology, quantitative sociology, biostatistics. Experience working with large databases or conducting intervention studies will be a definite asset.

Denise Thomson, long-time Child Health Field Coordinator, has accepted a new full-time position with the Alberta unit of Canada’s national Strategies for Patient-Oriented Research initiative. This is an exciting opportunity for her and we wish her very well in her new role. Denise will not be leaving the Child Health Field entirely, however, as she has now been appointed as a Field Director, joining Drs. Katrina Williams (Australia), Ricardo Fernandes (Portugal) and Lisa Hartling in Canada.
