Researchers in Manitoba, Ontario and Nova Scotia seek strategies to improve care environments
Researchers at Brandon University (BU), Carleton University, Dalhousie University, University of Manitoba, and St. Francis Xavier University are undertaking a four-year research project to improve care environments for older adults and those who care for them.
The overall goal of this research is to identify how and why features of care environments influence violence in home and residential care settings with the aim of improving violence prevention strategies across long-term care.

From the top of your lip to the bottom of your boxer-shorts drawer, Brandon University is kicking off its annual Movember campaign with a focus on men and men’s mental health.
“Movember can be a lot of fun for some people and it can make space for discussions that should be happening all year round,” said Dr. Rachel Herron, founding director of the BU Centre for Critical Studies of Rural Mental Health and a Canada Research Chair in Rural and Remote Mental Health.
