Janet Williams, RN

Jan is an outstanding registered nurse and colleague who never hesitates to jump in and get the work done — no matter how messy. As the RN who was part of the original multiple award-winning Winnipeg Virtual Ward Project, Jan advanced person-centred, interprofessional care that decreased emergency room visits and hospital admissions while increasing the dignity of vulnerable people with complex medical needs. This innovative project benefitted the River East and Transcona communities of northeast Winnipeg. Her commitment to her patients reflects her commitment to social justice. It is through caring for the most vulnerable that our characters are revealed.
