Teaching/Clinical Practice

I have been teaching the methodology of synthesis at Queen’s University since 2009. This is a graduate level course in which the students complete a systematic review on a specific clinical topic. I co-supervise the MScHQ HQRS 898 project course in which students pull together all they have leaned throughout the program to do a project. I have been co-supervising this course since the program began.

Clinical Practice

  • Alzheimer care
  • Care of individuals in long term care facilities

Research Interests

My main focus is the methodology of synthesis and developing new methodologies to advance the science of synthesis.
