Indigenous community research partnerships can help address health inequities

Dr. Janet Jull works with interdisciplinary team to promote community-centered research approaches that privilege Indigenous ways of knowing, doing and being through all aspects of the research lifecycle.

The Conversation: Many researchers may lack resources to guide them in conducting research that is equitable, inclusive and respectful of diverse Indigenous knowledge, ethics, practice and research sovereignty.

Congratulations to Queen’s MSc(OT) 2021 student Grace Manalili, who is one of five national recipients of the Barb Worth Emergent Leader Award in Occupational Therapy. This award is to remind leaders of tomorrow to balance emotional investment in the challenges at hand with personal wellbeing. Relaxing and re-energizing with small self-indulgences are also part of leadership, for often the effort that makes leadership appear effortless goes unrecognized by anyone but the leader. Wise words for our future leaders!

Skye Barbic and Catherine Backman: Staying happy while staying home: Lessons from occupational therapy

Coping with COVID-19 has disrupted the daily lives of nearly everyone in some way. Finding ways to re-establish meaningful daily routines is what occupational therapists are all about! See the great article by Drs. Barbic and Backman that was published in the Vancouver Sun. Dr. Barbic is a Queen's Alumni and a recent Distinguished Alumni award winner!

OPINION: There is a limit to how much time we can spend in our jammies, streaming movies. Sit down with a tablet (paper or electronic) and sketch out a daily routine.

03/30/2020

Occupational therapy students in the Queen’s School of Rehabilitation Therapy program have been bringing community development principles to life with an initiative that is providing lunches to Kingstonians in need. The project was developed in partnership with Home Base Housing, a local housing organization that supports people who have insecure housing by providing affordable housing options and a 24/7 overnight shelter. Home Base Housing identified a need for lunch meal bags to be provided for their community of 40 people due to temporary service disruption as a result of COVID-19. The coordinators, Tom Heneghan and Jon Dunning responded by mounting a campaign to solicit funds and food donations from School of Rehabilitation colleagues. The two then followed a sanitary process for loading bags with juice, a water bottle, and a granola bar. The lunch bags are then picked up to be filled with sandwiches provided by the Family Shelter and shared with the community. The first donation of 240 lunch bags was made on March 26th, and further donations are planned.

Overall, the pair has raised over $1100 from members of the School of Rehabilitation Therapy as well as additional support in the form of food donations from School members and local businesses. Tom writes, ‘The generosity from the community has been outstanding and now we are coordinating with HBH to determine how best to use the funds we have received’. They are looking to potentially extend the time commitment of the team, expand the offerings in each lunch bag, or to donate remaining funds to Home Base Housing for other pressing needs.
