Congratulations to the 2018–2019 Alzheimer Society of Manitoba Fellowship Award Recipient!
Deanne O’Rourke, a clinical nurse specialist and a doctoral candidate in the College of Nursing at the University of Manitoba, is this year’s recipient of the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba Fellowship Award. Her research involves video feedback training designed to help health care aides enhance communication with residents with dementia living in long term care. She hopes the video recordings will be a powerful tool in promoting person-centred care by looking at day-to-day interactions with residents.
