Memorial University Research Week 2022 - Nursing Research Online Poster Presentation Series

This series was a collaborative effort by the Centre for Nursing Studies, the Western Regional School of Nursing, and the Faculty of Nursing. 

Our goal was to showcase important nursing research happening here in the province and to encourage further collaboration with our nursing sites and other disciplines.

Researchers at our sites are engaging in a range of studies focused on promoting and improving the health and well-being of the people of Newfoundland and Labrador, and closely align with Memorial University's strategic research priorities, specifically:

(a) Well-being, health and biomedical discovery

(b) Governance and public policy; and

(c) Social justice

It's research consistent with the principles of primary health care.

We hope that you take a moment to look through the posters we have included in this team effort, posters that highlight the important nursing research happening here in our wonderful province!
