Cape Breton University and Nova Scotia Health are hosting a virtual health research conference on October 21 and 22, aiming to build capacity for health research and innovation partnerships in the Eastern Zone.
Dr. Gail Tomblin Murphy wears many hats in the run of a week: a health system and nurse leader, researcher, a champion for innovation, an expert advisor on workforce planning, and an advisor of PhD students and post-doctoral fellows.
Claire Ward is a registered respiratory therapist and quality leader with the Perioperative Services team at Nova Scotia Health’s QEII Health Sciences Centre, where she works as an anesthesia assistant in the operating room.
National Volunteer Week is a great time to reflect on the expertise, wisdom and experience that volunteers in research bring to the health system in Nova Scotia.
Dr. Marie-Laurence Tremblay, manager of Nova Scotia Health’s Research Ethics Board, attributes its success to the board members, all of whom volunteer their time to support the integrity, safety and quality of research at Nova Scotia Health.
