The Capacity Research Unit is hiring a Course Development Coordinator to support the development of an online course to prepare undergraduate students in the theory and practice of outreach.

Welcome to the new Capacity Research Unit website! At the Capacity Research Unit, our focus is interdisciplinary research that is community-based and shaped by community-academic collaborations. Together with our partners, we address discrimination and inequities in healthcare and social services. It is important that all of our communication vehicles, including the website, reflect the go-forward research program focus. Hence, our new look!

The Capacity Research Unit, based at UBC’s School of Nursing, will receive $2,499,946 over seven years to implement and test a trauma and violence-informed outreach intervention for women and girls affected by violence. This project is one of 17 projects awarded funding through the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Partnership Grant Program and includes collaborations with 14 service and academic organizations across three Canadian provinces.

On December 17, 2018 Dr. Bungay was awarded the Excellence in Advancing Nursing Knowledge & Research Award at the inaugural awards ceremony of newly formed Nurses and Nurse Practitioners of BC (NNPBC).

We are in the midst of a busy and exciting time where we are growing and working on our current projects. Check back in August for a new website with lots of updates and news about what is happening at Capacity Research Unit!
