My EnACT (Enhancing Aged Care Transitions) Quality research program focuses on improving health system performance related to older persons’ transitions across the care continuum. Specifically, through this program, I examine facilitators and barriers to improving and reducing older adults' transitions across the care continuum as well as how we monitor, evaluate and subsequently improve (or reduce) older persons' transitions using administrative health data. I have clinical experience as a Registered Nurse in long-term care, home care, acute psychiatry and emergency settings, and experience as a research analyst in government. I have expertise in knowledge synthesis and certain quantitative methods, and experience employing qualitative and mixed methods research approaches. I am also Co-Prinicipal Investigator of the Connecting, Leadership, Education and Research (CLEAR) Outcomes program with Dr. Greta Cummings.
