Philosophy: Dr. Goldie values active learning and student engagement in the classroom. She promotes these values by utilizing a variety of teaching modalities and integration of new learning technologies in an inclusive and equitable environment. Her courses are structured to challenge students to make increasingly complex evidence-informed decisions by providing tangible connections between course content and clinical practice.
Dr. Goldie’s research has two foci. The first focuses on using administrative datasets to investigate cardiovascular risk disease among people who suffer from mental health disorders. Her findings have provided compelling evidence for a renewed focus on the antecedents to poor physical health in this population. Dr. Goldie also investigates preventative interventions offered by nurses in clinical settings. She is specifically interested in tobacco/nicotine use, exercise interventions, nursing roles in the delivery of preventative services, and psychiatric medication monitoring. Dr. Goldie’s second stream of research is focused on measuring outcomes associated with enhanced access to palliative care.
Dr. Goldie has conducted a variety of research studies using multiple methodologies that utilize clinical and administrative data. Her projects primarily fall under the Queen’s Nursing and Health Research cluster of Populations with Complex Health Conditions.
