Graduate Student Supervision
I am currently accepting MNSc and PhD students in the area of chronic disease management, wound care, and gerontological nursing.
As an educator, I aspire to foster independent thinking, cultivate problem-solving skills, translate knowledge into practice, and provide learning experiences that are interactive and contextual based. I am currently teaching gerontological nursing and intermediate statistics. I am also teaching a public policy course in the Master of Science in Healthcare Quality MSc(HQ) program and critical appraisal of aging theories in the Aging and Health program at the School of Rehabilitation.
My research interests fall under the Queen’s Nursing and Health Research clusters of Populations With Complex Conditions and Health Care Quality. I am particularly interested in using innovative technologies to enhance chronic disease self-management, developing quality benchmarks for wound management, and implementing best practices for the care older persons. I received the 2012 International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) Early Career Research Award for his work in exploring the issue of inflammatory response and pain in chronic wounds. I am a recipient of an Early Researcher Award 2014-2019 from the Ministry of Research and Innovation.
I am an adjunct research professor at the Western University teaching for their Masters of Clinical Science in Wound Healing program. I am the Clinical Web Editor for Advances in Skin and Wound Care journal web site.
I am serving on a number of advisory boards including the International Skin Tears Advisory Panel (ISTAP) and Why Wound Care.
