Research Facts
Psychiatry refers to the branch of medicine dealing with mental illness, including the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of various disorders; psychiatry differs from psychology and focuses on both the physical and mental aspects of mental illness; also involves the use of medication to treat disorders.
The Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing was one of the first apprenticeship-based nursing training programs in Canada; began in 1886 in response to the increased focus on patient care in hospitals and the medical field; the program was meant to produce an educated and dedicated work force of nurses while also providing an affordable labour force for the hospital through on the job student training; the Ann Baillie Building, current home of the Museum of Healthcare at Kingston, originally served as a residence for the student nurses at KGH.
