Studies and snow angels: Nursing hosts visiting scholar from Brazil

Prof. Maria Márcia Bachion of the Federal University of Goiás (Brazil), recently completed three weeks as a UW-Green Bay visiting scholar in the Professional Program of Nursing. Bachion is currently completing her postdoctoral work under the direction of Dr. Alba Lucia Bottura Leite de Barros, at the Escola Paulista de Enfermagem of the Federal University of São Paulo (Brazil). She came to UW-Green Bay to work on data analysis and preparation of articles with Assistant Prof. Heather Herdman. Bachion’s postdoctoral work focuses on the evidence-based development of screening and assessment tools to enable accuracy in nursing diagnosis, outcomes and interventions for a variety of patient populations. Bachion spent a day with Associate Prof. Janet Reilly visiting the Wound Clinic at Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee, to compare treatment protocols between a major teaching hospital in the U.S. and her own university hospital in Goiás. She also “enjoyed” our Wisconsin climate enough to take a shot at creating some snow angels. (See photos.)
