Each year, the Ordre des infirmières et infirmiers du Québec recognizes and honours nursing expertise by highlighting the impressive career paths of its award winners through the Florence Awards.
Their exceptional contribution to the improvement of care and the advancement of the profession, their leadership and their exemplary practice are thus honoured. This year, 21 nurses and their accomplishments are being celebrated in seven categories (e.g. succession, health promotion, excellence in care) that reflect the reality of nursing.
Véronique Dubé holds the Marguerite-d’Youville Research Chair on Humanistic Nursing Interventions at the Université de Montréal. Her work shows the beneficial impact of nurses on people living with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers.
