A Parade of Gowns: A reflection by Michelle Spadoni, RN and Associate Professor at Lakehead University

Posted in In The News, Interviews, Speaking Events on June 9, 2015

In April, I was invited by Michelle Spadoni, RN and Associate Professor at Lakehead University, to give a workshop for the Provincial Nurses Education Interest Group AGM. Michelle introduced me by reading “A Parade of Gowns.” This is a poem of mine that even I had never read publicly, feeling it risky, the poem being about mistakes in health care and sometimes the silences that follow. She chose this poem and went further by offering her own reflection on why that poem. Here is the poem followed by her comments.
