My research focuses on symptom management for patients experiencing cancer, as well as professional navigation to support patients during the trajectory of their care. My research project on symptom management aims to identify the impact of specific nursing interventions on symptom management during chemotherapy treatments. Other recent projects focus on describing the interventions used by a nurse navigator, and estimating the manpower resources needed to provide accessibility to nurse navigator s (IPO) for cancer patients.
