Last year, we announced the 4 recipients of the inaugural Exceptional PBSG Facilitator Award:
Dr. James Lai, Dr. Lisa Moore, Dr. Paul Pelletier, and Ms. Lee-Anne Quinn. This month, we are featuring a spotlight on Dr. Quinn.
Lee-Anne Quinn, Nurse Practitioner in Peterborough
I graduated from the nurse practitioner program at Queen’s University in 2000 and from the master’s program for nurse practitioners at Athabasca University in 2005. I served our country for 23 years as a member of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF). I was awarded the Order of Military Merit in 2007 for my leadership in nurse practitioner development in the CAF. I was awarded the Florence Nightingale Award in 2003 by the Toronto Star for my work with First Nations and Inuit communities in Northern Ontario. I am presently employed by the Peterborough Family Health Team. My PBSG group is a diverse group of nurse practitioners and one physician. We all bring a different expertise to the table during our meetings. Our group has survived COVID-19 by continuing meetings via Zoom. Everyone has adapted nicely. We love meeting face to face as well. We are always learning from each other. Everyone is given the respect to speak and to be listened to. I have the best PBSG group in the country. We enjoy the challenges of the module subjects and individual cases. We are very thankful for the amazing work to assist us in a perpetual learning environment.
