The Consortium welcomes Dr. Lesley McBain as our newest visiting associate professor. She is joining us in February and March of 2015.
Dr. McBain has a PhD in Geography from the University of Saskatchewan and is currently an Associate Professor in Indigenous Studies at the First Nations University of Canada. Her research focuses on health care delivery in rural and remote regions of Saskatchewan, in both the historical and contemporary contexts. Dr. McBain is involved in a number of on-going research projects, one of which examines the delivery of dementia care services in First Nation reserve communities and non First Nation communities to determine if there are areas of collaboration between the different jurisdictions.
While visiting, Dr. McBain will guest lecture on “Place and Nursing in Remote Northern Communities: A Historical Perspective” and work with graduate students interested in historical approaches to nursing research and using place in historical and contemporary analyses.
