Possibilités de stagiaires en santé communautaire de l’École des sciences infirmières (Université d’Ottawa) dans les coopératives à l’automne 2017

Intéressés à des activités en lien avec la santé communautaire cet automne?

Vous aimeriez une évaluation des besoins des membres de votre coopérative?

Un rapport sur les ressources de votre quartier? Une cartographie des aspects communautaires en lien avec la santé de votre environnement? Un programme d’activités ludiques pour les enfants? Des discussions sur des sujets d’actualité en santé ou simplement des activités concrètes de promotion de la santé comme des cuisines collectives?

La santé communautaire comprend un vaste ensemble de possibilités en lien avec les déterminants sociaux de la santé (logement, pauvreté, chômage, isolement social, solidarité, soutien social, etc.).

Les projets dépendent de vos besoins qui regroupent aussi la promotion de la santé des enfants et des ainés.

Tous les jeudis, débutant le 14 septembre au 30 novembre 2017, un groupe de 2 à 4 étudiants francophones en sciences infirmières pourra être parmi vous.

Déjà présents dans certaines coopératives, des projets ont été eu du succès comme la course au trésor, les jeux collectifs, la trousse de premiers soins, le club de marche, la fête de l’Halloween, etc.

Vous pouvez contacter la responsable des stages Stacey Byer sbyer@uottawa.ca  ou la coordinatrice de stages Hélène Laperrière, au helene.laperriere@uottawa.ca de l’École des sciences infirmières de l’Université d’Ottawa.

Il s’agit d’un stage dans lequel les étudiants développent leurs compétences communautaires et apprennent sur le modèle coopératif tout en offrant des activités gratuites en lien avec la santé.
