The 52nd Annual Marion Woodward Lecture took place on October 29th. The day involved a dynamic and informative panel symposium on “Navigating the Tempest: Nursing Practice During COVID-19.” Among the panelists were current faculty members Jennifer Baumbusch and Farinaz Havaei, as well as our BC Ministry of Health’s Chief Nursing Officer Natasha Prodhan-Bhalla, and an incredible Clinical Nurse Specialist in Intensive Care from St. Paul’s Hospital (and UBC alum) Vini Baines.

The Marion Woodward Lecture this year was delivered by Yvonne Coghill, [seen in the above photo] who is the Deputy President of the Royal College of Nurses in the UK. She spoke on “Nursing Leadership in the English National Health Service” and touched on a wide range of topics of high relevance to BC nurses, including diversity and coping with the pandemic.

You can watch the full symposium on the School’s YouTube channel.
