Improving health care for children

For Dr. Shelley Doucet (BN ’05, PhD ’10), it began at UNB Saint John when she was a graduate student in nursing and interdisciplinary studies. She recognized the need for more coordinated and patient-centered care for New Brunswick families dealing with complex health conditions.

Her research received national recognition, which culminated in her being appointed the Jarislowsky Chair in Interprofessional Patient-Centred Care. Dr. Doucet’s current research focuses on improving health care practices for children who face chronic illnesses.

The programs that are expected to result from this research will have a wide impact thanks to investments of $1 million from the Jarislowsky Foundation, $500,000 from the Sir James Dunn Foundation and $750,000 from the New Brunswick Children’s Foundation.
