The Université de Montréal Marguerite-d’Youville Research Chair on Humanistic Nursing Interventions has the mission to promote and support research, training and knowledge exchange on how to develop and evaluate interventions (clinical, training and management) for care delivery based on humanistic principles, in collaboration with individuals, families, communities, nurses and other health professionals, educators, administrators, policy makers and researchers.
To work together to improve and maintain how humanistic care is provided to individuals, families and communities.
The visual identity of the Chair attempts to translate its mission, vision and objectives into an image. The heart, formed by the initials M and Y, recalling Marguerite d’Youville , embraces an outstretched hand representing the humanistic care provided by nurses to individuals, families and communities, which are symbolized by three brightly coloured spheres. This visual identity is accompanied by the slogan To Care with Humanism and Science, which summarizes the philosophy of the Chair.
