Bio/Research

Geertje Boschma leads a research program on the history of nursing and health care, with special emphasis on mental health and mental health nursing. Her current studies include historical analyses of the development of mental health services and the transition to community mental health in BC. She explores the ways nurses, other health professionals, clients, and families have experienced this change and have contributed to the development of community services. Furthermore, she conducts a study on the history of general hospital psychiatry and is a co-investigator on a pan-Canadian comparative study of deinstitutionalization and community mental health. Master's and Doctoral students are involved in her program. Her research aims to add to the understanding of change in health care and nursing’s professional identity.
