Professional Background
A nurse by background, I am strongly committed to improving pain management through collaborative practice where professionals can work and learn together to improve patient care. My research expertise on mixed methods research (quantitative and qualitative approaches) is integral to my research program focusing on patients’ experiences of pain, pain education, and the impact of organization policy on pain management. In particular, I am interested in the barriers to effective pain management and knowledge translation (KT) or implementation science related to pain management.
