Kelli Stajduhar named one of the inaugural Canadian Academy of Nursing Fellows

A Canadian leader and advocate for quality care of the dying, her research is revolutionizing care for persons with chronic and life-limiting conditions, advocating for a palliative approach to care planning, and moving beyond traditional models focused on end-stage disease. Her research related to family caregiving in palliative care and with structurally vulnerable persons is internationally regarded as groundbreaking, exposing structural inequities and ideological assumptions that drive health-care delivery. Stajduhar is an elected Fellow in the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences. She was named Academic of the Year by the Confederation of University Faculty Associations of B.C. and received the Research Excellence Award from the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing. Author of over 100 peerreviewed publications, editor of two books, and principal investigator of several interdisciplinary studies, she presents provincially, nationally and internationally to diverse research, educational and public audiences.
