February is Therapeutic Recreation Month
Therapeutic Recreation Month occurs every February and celebrates the positive impact Manitoba’s recreational therapists have on patients.
Therapeutic Recreation is a health-care profession that uses recreation as a form of intervention. As part of a team, recreation coordinators work alongside physicians and other health professionals to help patients with any kind of impairment—physical, emotional, cognitive or social—and encourage them to embrace leisure.
Nursing Initiatives at HSC Winnipeg
A message from Monika Warren, acting chief nursing officer, HSC Winnipeg
My name is Monika Warren, acting chief nursing officer at HSC Winnipeg. I started my career as a nurse 29.5 years ago at HSC. During my career, I have had the opportunity to learn a lot about the nursing practice, as well as how much patients benefit from the collaboration and skill of the entire inter-professional team.
I feel very proud to represent our profession at HSC. The best part of my week is when I get to walk through the units and meet and speak with nursing staff and our patients and their families.
Over the past two years, our health system has experienced unprecedented change designed to improve the quality, consistency and efficiency of the care we provide.

A two-thousand-kilometre journey in search of answers
On the day that would have been her oldest child’s birthday, Nina Kautuq received the answers she has always longed for.
In 2015, Nina, her husband Ike and their four children, aged two to 11 at the time, were camping near Pond Inlet in Nunavut on August 16 when their tent caught on fire. Nina and her children were flown to Ottawa to receive care, while Ike was transported to HSC Winnipeg.
The decision of where to transfer each family member was based on resources available at the time and where they could receive the fastest care possible.
