this conversation between Registered Nurse Danielle Lyle and UHN's Chief Nursing Executive Pam Hubley on the important work underway to build a future at UHN that our much-valued nurses want to remain a part of. A new UHN Nursing Strategy, to be developed after soliciting feedback from UHN nurses in virtual planning sessions running through mid-April, is a key element of that goal. “There are so many brilliant people – practitioners who are also scholars and mentors – who inspire us every day. Together, we can enable nurses to push boundaries, be champions of change, and to lead and develop the next generation of providers. That's pretty awesome!" Pam said. I couldn't agree more. Nurses interested in helping to shape the new strategy can complete
an anonymous survey here or sign up for
one of the focus groups running until April 11. Questions? Please email

World Tuberculosis Day is observed on March 24, commemorating the date exactly 141 years ago when Dr. Robert Koch unveiled his discovery of the bacillus that causes TB. This day gives us a chance to shine a light on
The Toronto Western Tuberculosis Clinic, a specialized clinic that addresses and treats people with both Active TB and Latent TB infection. Symptoms of TB include cough, fever, chills, night sweats, tiredness, loss of appetite, weight loss, and chest pain. Though TB can be treated and cured, more than 4,100 people around the world lose their lives to this disease each day, according to the World Health Organization. TB is known to persist in marginalized communities. While the risk of the disease for most people in Canada is low, there are higher rates of TB in people born outside of Canada and rates of active TB are much higher among Indigenous populations. According to Health Canada, the rate of TB in the Arctic homeland of the Inuit is more than 300 times higher than the Canadian-born, non-Indigenous population, and the rate of TB among First Nations living on reserve is more than 40 times higher than the non-Indigenous population. We thank UHN's TB Clinic for its exceptional work, particularly during the pandemic, which has resulted in more people affected by TB than usual.
