Research Focus

As an educator, I need to determine what challenges and opportunities that exist, for my graduates, to insure that the training provided is relevant. My training as a gerontologist also plays a vital role as I want to prepare graduates to work as a sonographer for several decades. To maximize the educational preparation and also to provide high quality care for patients into the 21st century, therefore the training needs to be informed by the changing work environment, in hospitals and clinics. This was the context behind dedicating resources in my laboratory to exploring the impact that workplace injury has on my graduates.
