The Ontario CLRI at Bruyère is excited to welcome four co-op students from the University of Ottawa who have joined our team virtually for summer 2021. The students will apply their academic learnings to assist our team on various portfolios including communications at end-life, clinical nursing leadership and diversity and inclusion in LTC.
“We’re excited to have students from various academic backgrounds as it shows there are so many educational pathways into the world of long-term care,” says Zsofia Orosz, manager of the Ontario CLRI at Bruyère team.
The students will be working with our team at Bruyère until the end of August when they return to their studies. Please join us in welcoming these four exceptional students.
The Ontario CLRI develops, delivers and evaluates educational resources and programs to train the current and future LTC workforce. We build on partnerships with colleges and universities to provide in-person, blended and virtual training for interprofessional teams, as well as student placements and internships.
Meet Our Summer Co-op Students
My name is Anne Corcoran, and I’m pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Healthcare Analytics at the University of Ottawa. I’m interested in long-term care because there’s nothing more rewarding to me than working towards improving the quality of care for seniors. During my co-op placement with the Ontario CLRI, I am looking forward to making an impact on the LTC sector through the research I’ll be conducting.
My name is Natacha Mao, I just finished my second year of study at the University of Ottawa. I majored in Healthcare Analytics, which is a new major at the Telfer School of Management. I’m really excited to be involved in the Communication at End-of-Life portfolio. During this co-op placement, I hope to get exposure to the real healthcare industry and apply my knowledge to real-world settings. I’m highly interested in the healthcare field and eager to put into practice all I learned from class. As a student majoring in healthcare analytics, I hope I can better integrate the data analysis into the long-term care sector to provide insights that will help improve the quality of life of residents. At the same time, I’m highly interested in technological innovations (such as eLearning) which can help analyze and develop the professionalism of healthcare practitioners.
Meet Sarah B.
My name is Sarah Berube and I am a sociology major at the University of Ottawa. Throughout my placement, I am looking forward to the chance to make a positive impact on the LTC sector. I previously worked in a LTC home, and I have family members that continue to work in the LTC sector, so I hope to contribute to projects that will improve the sector for both the staff and the residents.
Meet Sarah S.
My name is Sarah Sollors and I am a proud University of Ottawa student working towards obtaining an Honours Bachelor of Social Sciences in Conflict Studies and Human Rights. I gained an interest in getting involved within the long-term Care sector after spending a summer working at a local nursing home — an experience that allowed me to make many amazing connections and gain numerous relevant skills! I am looking forward to making contributions through my research towards improving the quality of the Long-term Care sector for not only the residents but also the staff and care members involved. The Ontario CLRI at Bruy?ère team has been beyond welcoming and I am excited to see where this co-op placement will take me!
