Current Research Projects

The Centre has several areas of interest that are typically operationalized within the context of a single research project. Once a research proposal is designed, a team of experts is assembled to conduct the project. Research is typically carried out over a one or two year period.

The Centre has completed a Pallium-funded project on Dementia and End-of-Life Care in Four Ethnic Communities in Northern Alberta entitled Cultural Competency Skills for Health Care Professionals: Learning Manual. While this manual is out of print, we are rewriting and updating the manual and expect it to be published in 2014.

French-speaking colleagues will be happy that the manual now exists as Cours Formation Interculturelle, thanks in part to the translating abilities of Roger Parent, Raphael Fortin and Arnaud Jean from Campus St. Jean. Funding for this development came from the Interdisciplinary Health Research Academy and the Roger Smith Scholarship. In addition to projects which are undertaken by Centre members, individual researchers who are affiliated with the Centre also conduct their own projects pertaining to the mandate of the Centre. The projects include:
  • A study of Islamic approach to medical ethical issues-PI: Dr. Earle Waugh
  • A study on Chinese traditional medicine PI: Dr. Steven Aung
