2017 Margaret McLean Lecture on Nursing
If you are a registered nurse (RN), nurse educator, or a nursing student on your way to becoming an RN, you won’t want to miss the 2017 Margaret McLean Lecture in Nursing coming up this February 21, at 4 pm in the Health Sciences Auditorium at the Health Sciences Centre in St. John's.
Dr. Laurie Gottlieb will present a lecture on strengths-based nursing, which is deemed the new nursing paradigm for the 21st century!
Dr. Gottlieb is a professor in the Ingram School of Nursing at McGill University in Montreal.
She holds the Flora Madeline Shaw Chair of Nursing at McGill University, is the Nurse-Scholar-in-Residence at the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal and a co-director of the International Institute of Strengths-Based Nursing and Health Care.
Dr. Gottlieb says strengths-based nursing is an approach to care that “provides the vision, values, and evidence that can transform and humanize health care by reconnecting it with the concepts of Florence Nightingale and expanding those concepts to meet the realities of 21st-century health care.”
She is the developer of Strengths-Based Nursing, a philosophical approach to nursing that evolved from the McGill Model of Nursing and is being adopted worldwide.
Dr. Gottlieb is the author of many books, including Strengths-Based Nursing Care: Health and Healing for Person and Family which earned the AJN Book of the year in 2013. Her books have been translated into French, Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese, Korean and Dutch, and she’s also written book chapters, monographs, and peer reviewed articles.
The following day, Feb. 22, Dr. Gottlieb will present a workshop about Strength-based Nursing to faculty members from the School of Nursing, The Centre for Nursing Studies and the Western Regional School of Nursing.
A strength-based approach, she says, is about looking at client and family strengths, and helping to build on those strengths.
