RN, BSN, MN, PhD, CHPCN, Professor
Lorraine worked in clinical practice for more than 20 years, before completing a Master’s (2005) and PhD (2008) at the University of Saskatchewan.
As a community nurse, Lorraine’s nursing career focused mainly on providing palliative care in the community. Her research interests in care of the family, the family caregiver, and end-of-life care have evolved from her practice and commitment to help and families. She teaches community nursing and qualitative research methods.
Lorraine has a total of more than 80 peer-reviewed manuscripts in reputable, peer-reviewed and indexed journals, 5 refereed book chapters and 31 published abstracts. Many are co-written with graduate students. She recently co-edited a book for Springer Nature titled: Hospice Palliative Home Care and Bereavement Support: Nursing Interventions and Supportive Care.
Lorraine also serves as an Honorary Associate Professor at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa and greatly enjoys working with international students and researchers.
