In 2018, Viviane Grandpierre finished her PhD in Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of Ottawa. In her dissertation research, she focused on culturally competent healthcare. She continues to conduct research on cultural safety in healthcare for Indigenous families. The context of such research inevitably includes the humanities, as well as related scholarship and disciplines. Presently, Dr. Grandpierre is a research coordinator at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario in Ottawa, Canada and continues to collaborate with interdisciplinary research teams.
The Journal for the Humanities in Rehabilitation is a peer reviewed, multi-media journal using a collaborative model with rehabilitation professionals, patients and their families to gain a greater understanding of the human experience of disability through art, literature and narrative. The purpose of this interdisciplinary journal is to raise the consciousness and deepen the intellect of the humanistic relationship in the rehabilitation sciences.
The Journal of Humanities in Rehabilitation offers a mailing list with periodic updates about new articles.
