Biographie

Josephine B. Etowa est professeure titulaire à la Faculté des sciences de la santé de l'Université d'Ottawa. Elle a reçu un baccalauréat et une maîtrise en sciences infirmières de l'Université Dalhousie, ainsi qu'un doctorat en sciences infirmières de l'Université de Calgary. Elle a également obtenu une bourse de recherche postdoctorale de la Fondation canadienne de la recherche sur les services de santé (FCRSS); sa recherche, menée à l'Université de Toronto et à l'Université d'Ottawa, a porté sur la diversité dans les soins de santé au Canada. S'appuyant sur plus de 23 années de pratique clinique, son programme de recherche porte sur l'iniquité en santé et dans les soins de santé, ainsi que sur la santé des mères et des nouveau-nés. Elle a reçu des subventions d’organismes internationaux, nationaux, provinciaux et locaux pour ses travaux de recherche fondés sur les principes de la recherche qualitative et de la recherche-action participative (RAP). Pour traduire la complexité des réalités sociales souvent inhérentes à la recherche en sciences infirmières, la professeure Etowa applique des méthodes de recherche mixtes, notamment l'intégration de l'approche quantitative et de l'approche qualitative. Elle a mené une carrière professionnelle internationale; de plus, à titre d’infirmière autorisée, de sage-femme, de consultante en allaitement, de chercheure et de pédagogue, elle a rempli diverses fonctions au sein du système canadien des soins de santé. Avant d'occuper son poste actuel, elle a été professeure agrégée en sciences infirmières à la faculté des professions de la santé à l'Université Dalhousie. Elle détient également une affectation honorifique auprès du Centre de soins de santé IWK à Halifax en Nouvelle-Écosse.
