For the 2015 Marion Woodward Lecture, the UBC School of Nursing is capitalizing on synergies between local researchers, healthcare leaders, front-line health care practitioners and our invited speaker, Dr. Robyn Tamblyn, to host an afternoon panel symposium titled Nursing Leadership Roles in eHealth Technologies.  Panelists will share the realities of launching and sustaining health informatics initiatives in the British Columbian context. This highly anticipated afternoon symposium will provide an opportunity for dialogue about how transitioning to digital health information technologies affects point-of-care nursing, patients, and nursing management.
