The appointment of McMaster nursing professor Alba DiCenso as the CHSRI/CIHR Chair in Advance Practice Nursing has been renewed by the Canadian Health Services Research Foundation and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research for the final six years of her 10 year term.

Her work, related to education, mentoring, research, and communications, has included evaluation of nurse practitioner roles and intervention and the management of nursing services; a proposal to improve access to high quality health care for Canadians with common chronic diseases through the integration of advance practice nurses in specialized roles; and the provision of bursaries to graduate students.

The CHSRF/CIHR Chair Awards fund mid-career leaders in applied health services and nursing research to train graduate students, act as mentors for new researchers, build national networks and conduct research.
