Currently I am involved in several studies focused on: Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging, Joanna Briggs Institute, women's health promotion, cardiovascular care,  nurse educator competency validation, Health Services Researcher Pathway development ,  evaluation of a community-based hypertension intervention, and eportfolio implementation.


For the past several years I have been thinking about and developing strategies and a model to guide learner-centred teaching.

In this approach to teaching, the educator partners with learners to determine how together they can work to meet course and program goals. In this approach to teaching, the educator develops competencies for best practices in teaching and learning. My teaching interests further encompass curriculum development, implementation and evaluation.

I have taught numerous courses in the undergraduate program, and the MN Programs including core, theory and practice courses. Currently, I am supervising several PhD students.
