Pre Marie-Eve Poitras is co-principal investigator of a $3 million project to develop a national training intervention for primary care nurses!

Services Canada has awarded a $45 million grant to the "Workforce Solutions to Strengthen Team-Based Comprehensive Primary care" project. The objectives of this major project are to understand and enhance professional practice in primary care. A $3 million grant has been awarded to the subproject "Development and implementation of national post-curricular training for primary care nurses" to support primary care nursing practice, improve planning and contribute to the development of a stronger nursing workforce.

Marie-Eve Poitras, Associate Professor in the Faculté de médecine et des sciences de la santé of Université de Sherbrooke, is co-principal investigator with Pre Julia Lukewich (MemorialUniversity NFL) in collaboration with the Canadian Family Practice Nurses Association.

Continuing education will fill the gaps in the initial nursing curriculum, based on the principles of the College of Family Physicians of Canada and the Canadian Competencies for Nurses in Primary Care (CCPNC). The evaluation of the effects and implementation process of this training will be carried out with a view to improving professional practices.

By better supporting current and future practitioners, Canadians will have better access to equitable care close to home.

Congratulations to the whole team!
