USask College of Nursing bridging the gap to improve Indigenous health with new $1.05M research chair – meadowlakeNOW

USask College of Nursing is supporting and mentoring Indigenous and non-Indigenous undergraduate and graduate student nurses to conduct research to advance reconciliation in nursing practice, research, education, and administration.

In a press release, Vice-President of Research Karen Chad said the new program will prepare a new generation of Indigenous youth to help reduce the health disparity between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.

“Under Dr. Graham’s highly regarded leadership, this program provides an opportunity to strengthen reconciliation in nursing education so that Indigenous people are better served within the health care system,” Chad said.

Funding for the new USask chair will total almost $1.05 million, with contributions of $666,500 from Canadian Institutes of Health Research, $308,500 from the Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation, $10,000 from the Canadian Nurses Foundation, and $60,000 from USask.
