Throughout the fall, our Great People have been sharing their expertise at a number of sector events. Kathleen Norman, Senior Director of Performance and Innovation, presented at the Nursing Homes of Nova Scotia Association’s (NHNSA) conference on the journey to data-informed care, sharing the work of the Shannex Insights Lab and predictive behaviours. Kyle Richardson, Director of First Nations’ Services
and Regional Manager Sydney Enhanced Care, gave a presentation at the NHNSA conference during the
Solutions Showcase to talk about the Harbourstone Behavioural Unit Pilot Project. Gillian Hoyt-Hallett, Implementation Director, New Brunswick Nursing Home Projects, was a panelist at the Empower 2022+ Summit in Saint John focused on strengthening New Brunswick’s workforce and the importance of experiential learning for students with partners like us. There were many team members who took the time to attend these events. Thank you for supporting our sector, connecting with others in our industry and for representing Shannex so well every day. Kyle Richardson was appointed President of the NHNSA
this year and addresses the audience at the awards gala.

On October 26, Shannex’s Insights Lab Manager, Vicki Muscat, took part in Innovate Care 2022, an event
hosted by Nova Scotia’s Department of Seniors & Long-Term Care and Nova Scotia Health’s Innovation Hub. Along with speakers from across the country, Vicki was there to share thought-provoking insights on topics about seniors’ health and wellness. Vicki was part of a panel discussing the challenges and
innovations for dementia, ageing, frailty and primary care. Other panellists included Dr. Marjan Abbasi
from the University of Alberta and Dr. Ed Leach from Aging Proactively. “As a newly developed innovative division within Shannex, I’m proud that we’re engaging with likeminded peers at such conferences. This allows us to collaborate and learn from other healthcare experts,” says Shannex Insights Lab Manager, Vicki Muscat. “Through our work we have seen that the appropriate use of data can be a powerful tool in your kit to mitigate risk and better support individuals across the entire spectrum of care.”
