Overview

Area of Study / Keywords

Ageing continence hospital transitions for older persons


About

I am a Professor and Nurse Practitioner focused on ageing and care for older persons. 


Research

My research interests stem directly from my clinical experience as a Registered Nurse, and as a Nurse Practitioner. I have collaborated locally, nationally and internationally with researchers in continence. As well, I have research interests in hospital care and transitions for older adults, ageism and nurse/student nurse gerontological nursing education. 


Teaching

My teaching has focused predominantly in our Nurse Practitioner program
