Researcher Nicole Dubuc Awarded Prix Florence 2016

Sherbrooke, May 5, 2016 - The Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociaux de l'Estrie – Centre hospitalier universitaire de Sherbrooke (CIUSSE – CHUS) congratulates Researcher Nicole Dubuc, the scientific director of the Research Centre on Aging (CdRV), for being among the recipients of the prestigious Prix Florence 2016 and for her contributions to nursing research.

The Ordre des infirmières et infirmiers du Québec (OIIQ) has been awarding the Prix Florence over the past 14 years to nurses who have made an outstanding contribution to their profession. This year, nine nurses received the award named after Florence Nightingale, a nineteenth-century British woman who pioneered and ushered nursing into the modern era.

"Her career exemplifies how combining research, education, and clinical practices is essential to developing care and services that are increasingly adapted to the needs of individuals," said Sylvain Bernier, the administrative director of research at the CIUSSE – CHUS.
