Amélie Blanchet Garneau (Co-Investigator) is an Assistant Professor at Université de Montréal in Montréal, Quebec.
I am interested in critical theoretical perspectives regarding culture and health, and the relevance of cultural safety in shifting organizational practices and policies toward fostering health and health care equity. I have a theoretical and practical background in initial and continuing nursing education and I see critical pedagogy as one way to transform healthcare practices toward health care equity. My program of research aims at translating an equity-oriented approach of care for marginalized populations in health care professionals’ initial and continuing education. I envision that my research program could directly inform curriculum development in nursing and other health disciplines focusing on promoting social justice and equity in health and health care.
