Titre: Symptômes de troubles mentaux au sein des infirmières au Canada avant la COVID-19 : implications pour l'avenir.



Les résultats d’une enquête pancanadienne en ligne, réalisée en 2019 sur les blessures de stress opérationnel des infirmières seront présentés.  Les résultats révèlent la prévalence et les causes profondes des symptômes de troubles mentaux des infirmières ainsi que les comportements de recherche d'aide parmi les infirmières.  Nous examinerons les implications de ces résultats sur le système de santé du Canada compte tenu de l’impact de la COVID-19 sur la santé mentale des infirmières.

Biographie (disponible en anglais seulement) :

Linda Silas has been the President of the 200,000-strong Canadian Federation of Nurses Unions (CFNU) since 2003. As the dynamic and charismatic leader of Canada’s largest nurses’ organization, Linda is recognized as the foremost advocate on behalf of nurses in Canada.

Starting her tenure as a full-time labour activist as the single mom of a 13-month-old son has shaped Linda in a very distinctive way. Linda has earned a reputation for being a caring listener who is focused and solution-oriented in everything she does. A proud New Brunswicker, Linda credits her home province for both her impressive work ethic and her well-known zest for life and adventure.

Linda has fine-tuned her skills as a union leader at the local, provincial, national and international levels over the course of two decades. She is a passionate speaker whose straight-talking in both official languages inspires nurses and earns the respect of policy-makers and stakeholders. Linda’s favourite public speaking engagements are always for students, as she believes that mentoring the next generation of activists is an important responsibility we all share.

Linda champions greater understanding and action on social justice, the social determinants of health and key policies that will enhance socio-economic equity, such as retirement security for all workers, a national pharmacare program, universal child care and greater access to public services for Indigenous communities. 

Linda was previously the President of the New Brunswick Nurses Union (NBNU) for 10 years. Linda is a graduate of l’Université de Moncton, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, and has practiced in the ICU, emergency, and labour and delivery.

Linda believes health care, like education and decent work, is a human right. She embodies the CFNU motto “Where knowledge meets know-how.”
