Health promotion in the community; Community health assessment and level interventions; Health care policy: implications for nursing practice
My research program is in the area of community health, both urban and rural contexts. My focus is addressing social justice and equity issues in marginalized and vulnerable populations. This includes identifying directions for programs and policies and initiating knowledge transfer activities. I am currently researching how inner-city communities build capacity for population health promotion and collaborate for common policy goals. I have conducted research on the work of community health nurses and their role in policy activities through the lens of feminist research and qualitative methodology.
