UBC’s Capacity Research Unit trainee Sunny Jiao is the recipient of the Canadian Nurses Foundation Lundbeck Canada Inc. Mental Health Nursing Award. The prestigious award is open to eligible registered nurses working in mental health and aims to increase nursing capacity to improve mental health care and services.
Sunny’s research will focus on examining the complex interplay of factors that influence the uptake of harm reduction programming in the acute care setting. In this, she will work toward identifying facilitators and barriers to harm reduction integration, as well as examine factors that may impact the ability of nurses to engage in harm reduction at the point-of-care.
Congratulations Sunny, we are excited for you and proud of your contributions to the unit.
