History, geography and ethics of health worker migration in Canada
When? 1pm on Wednesday, October 9th
Where? Tommy Douglas Library in Burnaby
Dr. Geertje Boschma and Dr. Margery Hawkins, School of Nursing, will be giving an important presentation that explores issues of health worker migration by examining the history, geography, and ethics of international recruitment and migration of health workers to Canada. They will focus on the experiences of registered nurses from the Philippines who have migrated to Canada. During the past few decades the migration of Filipino nurses to Canada has considerably expanded, with nurses from the Philippines making up the largest group of all immigrant nurses in the Canadian workforce. What are the implications of these trends for the healthcare community?
This talk is part of the Health Information Series, a collaboration of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and Woodward Library. The session on October 9th is hosted by the Burnaby Public Library’s Tommy Douglas Branch Library in collaboration with the Multicultural Helping House. Everyone is welcome!
