Canada remembers the Italian Campaign
This year Canada is observing the 75th anniversary of the Second World War’s Italian Campaign. It was one of our country’s most important contributions to the Allied war effort; more than 93,000 Canadians served in Italy from the summer of 1943 to early 1945. Our soldiers fought their way across the island of Sicily and up the boot of Italy across a challenging landscape of mountains and river valleys in the face of harsh weather conditions and a skilled enemy.
This special commemorative poster features Lieutenant Maxine Llewelyn Bredt. She was a Nursing Sister in the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps who helped treat the sick and wounded during the Italian Campaign. A recent picture of Ms. Bredt in her former uniform is superimposed on an historical photo showing soldiers of the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry in the Sicilian town of Agira after capturing it in July 1943.

CAHN/ ACHN ANNUAL CONFERENCE;
June 10-12, 2020 in Ottawa, Ont
“Care in Conflict: Health Care Under Tension”
Deadline for submission: December 1, 2019
The history of nursing is deeply marked by conflicts. Whether it is the struggle for professional identity, engagement in military conflicts as medical staff, or the various sociopolitical barriers as nurses sought to carry out their nursing practice. It is this tension, inherent in the history of nursing, that we wish to explore during this conference.
Papers touching on the broadly defined themes of tension and conflict within nursing and healthcare are welcome. The aim will be to highlight the different facets of conflicts in the history of health care.
Abstracts on other topics related to the history of nursing and health care will also be reviewed by the selection committee.
Please submit a one-page abstract (250 words max.) and a one page CV for consideration to the Online form.
