While cancer-specific outcomes have improved significantly in the past decades, survivors now represent an entirely new population suffering from multiple chronic and debilitating side effects resulting in physical dysfunction. My research program has completed several clinical and research projects in this area, the results of which have been practise-changing. As a result of this work, I have developed multiple new collaborations at the University of Alberta (Oncology, Cardiology, Biomedical Engineering, Rehabilitation Medicine), Alberta Health Services, nationally and internationally. Also, as a nurse practitioner with an active clinical practise, I am also interested in multidisciplinary approaches of care delivery, by personalizing accessibility, efficiency and effectiveness of health services.
