Diabetes Related Research Activities:

I have worked as a Nurse Practitioner in Cardiac Surgery since 1998, and in my role have cared for many individuals with diabetes (T2DM). Many patients who have sternal wound infections have diabetes, and many individuals have poor blood sugar control following cardiac surgery. Collaborating with an Endocrinilogist I helped to develop standardized pre-printed orders to help manage blood sugars for our patient's who had T2DM. I am interested in the prevention of complications in individuals with diabetes, with a specific interest is in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. I am a co-investigator and member of the steering committee for a CIHR-funded team grant (PI Dr. Stewart Harris) investigating diabetes in several aboriginal communities in Canada. Current efforts are directed to the detection of autonomic neuropathies using impedance cardiography.
