Contemporary neuroscientific evidence indicates that unrestricted movement and gesture enhance children’s physical, social, and cognitive development by engaging them with the external properties of their environments. Current understanding of children’s engagement with indoor environments is limited. This knowledge gap matters because children’s health, social abilities, and cognitive development may be compromised in physical environments that inhibit rather than enhance their movement capacit...

Purpose Policies and procedures exist in many jurisdictions regarding ‘anonymity’. These prohibit communication between transplant recipients and donor families. Social media may enable identification of donor families/recipients resulting in unsupervised communication and exchange of information. We have previously reported that heart transplant recipients want to connect with their donor families. The purpose of this study was to ask heart donor families what they thought about current practic...

The paper engages with a variety of data around a supposedly single biomedical event, that of heart transplantation. In conventional discourse, organ transplantation constitutes an unproblematised form of spare part surgery in which failing biological components are replaced by more efficient and enduring ones, but once that simple picture is complicated by employing a radically interdisciplinary approach, any biomedical certainty is profoundly disrupted. Our aim, as a cross-sectorial partnershi...

ABSTRACTAccessible built environments are a critical component of Canada’s commitment to disabled children’s ‘right to enjoy full and decent lives’ [United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. 1989. Convention on the Rights of the Child. New York.] . Although valid, reliable research data about the accessibility of built environments are key to developing related policies, these data currently do not exist. To begin to redress this gap, we conducted a case study series followed by a su...

Mothers of children with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) variably experience challenges in their caregiving role. This ethnographic study examined the caregiving experiences of mothers of a young person with ASD (aged ≤25 years). Semistructured interviews were conducted with 85 mothers across three Canadian regions. A follow-up subsample of 10 mothers took part in participant observation sessions in the home and/or other environments within the community. Analysis yielded themes that depicted ...

It was a pleasure to work with Laurie Gottlieb to produce Volume 33 No. 2 of the Canadian Journal of Nursing Research. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time a nursing journal has devoted an entire issue to home care. We hope that readers will share our pleasure in the result! The focus is very timely because, after more than a decade of dramatic "restructuring," most health care currently is provided in the homes of Canadians. The articles featured draw on an array of disciplines ...
