Presentation to address care of patients with diabetes

Nursing professor Judy Bornais will discuss ways health professionals can improve their care for patients with diabetes in a free public brown-bag presentation on Monday, November 19, in room 203, Toldo Health Education Centre.

Her talk, entitled “Patient safety issues related to the care of patients with diabetes,” will assist participants in recognizing insulin as a high-alert medication and will identify common insulin errors affecting patient care. She will discuss ways to minimize errors related to diabetes management.

Nursing professor recognized for connection with students

UWindsor nursing professor Judy Bornais says being named one of Ontario’s most outstanding university teachers by the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations (OCUFA) is “a huge honour,” but what really moved her were the kind remarks by students and colleagues.

“In the nomination package are a number of letters of support,” she says. “To me, that was one of the highlights—reading what students and colleagues think of your work.”
