Dr. Rhoda Macrae, a Lecturer in Dementia working at Hamilton Campus has just returned from her 2-week visit to Canada as part of her visiting Research Scholarship at the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon. Dr. Macrae was met with fantastic hospitality from our colleagues in their College of Nursing who had prepared an interesting and varied itinerary for her. The weather in the prairies was lovely, with the trees turning yellow and red as you can see from Rhoda’s pictures. Her lectures were well received with many participants joining virtually from remote sites across the province.
Her lectures were well received with many participants joining virtually from remote sites across the province. Scotland’s rights-based approach to policy, practice, and education, an approach supported in all of our teaching and in the work of the Alzheimer’s Scotland Centre for Policy and Practice was of particular interest. The meetings held to discuss collaborative research opportunities were very positive, and plans have made to both publish and submit grants co-operatively.
