Dalhousie Researcher Awarded CIHR Nursing Chair to Advance Indigenous Community Health Objectives – Dal News

With the World Health Organization (WHO) declaring 2020 the Year of the Nurse and Midwife, it is very fitting to Dalhousie University Faculty of Health researcher and RN Margot Latimer that this is the launch year for the first Nova Scotia CIHR (Canadian Institutes of Health Research) Indigenous Research Chair in Nursing.

The Chair is accompanied with close to one million dollars in funding over five years to support the advancement of Indigenous health nursing research, education and practice.

A remarkable opportunity

“Nurses are the largest cohort of health professionals and have an integral opportunity to support the health goals of First Nations Communities,” says Dr. Latimer. “This Chair is a remarkable opportunity to think about nursing and how nurses can practice and advocate for care from an Indigenous health perspective,” she continues.

“To be the first Nova Scotia Chair in Indigenous Health Research is very meaningful to me because it is another opportunity to work with Indigenous communities to advance their own health objectives, to have health care experiences that community members identify that optimize their health, and to be involved in research that is led by Indigenous nurses and health leaders,” says Dr. Latimer.
