March 11, 2020

The Canadian College of Health Leaders is pleased to announce that Gertie Mai Muise has been named the recipient of the first Healthcare Management Forum Article of the Year Award for her article entitled “Enabling cultural safety in Indigenous primary healthcare”. This new award, created with the support of SAGE Publishing, is focused on honouring a journal author whose article has helped to challenge the traditional notions of health leadership and motivate transformational behaviour.

One of the most downloaded articles in 2019, her article was chosen for the award because it is a perfect example of how to inspire meaningful reform based on real-world experience. Ms. Gertie Mai Muise, MAL, CNHP, is the Inaugural Executive Director of the Nova Scotia Mi’Kmaw Health and Wellness Authority and is a dedicated and respected leader in Indigenous health organizational development and systems change management. She has more than twenty years of experience collaborating with provincial and federal governments, LHINs and First Nation and indigenous governed Health Service providers.

The HMF Article of the Year Award is sponsored by SAGE Publishing, a leading independent, academic and professional publisher of innovative, high-quality content. 

This award is part of our CCHL National Awards Program and will be presented at the Honouring Health Leadership event on June 14, 2020 in Edmonton, AB, prior to the 2020 National Health Leadership Conference (NHLC).
