FREE Webinar: Proactive remote monitoring and real-time symptom management using mobile technology: a feasibility study
20 Mar 2020, 12:00 - 1:00 p.m.
Presented by: Doris Howell, RN, PhD, Professor
Dr. Doris Howell has an extensive clinical background in cancer care. As a researcher, her main goal is to optimize the quality of cancer care and empower patients as co-producers of health and well-being. At U of T Nursing, Dr. Howell developed the Clinical Nursing Stream – Oncology curriculum in the master’s program.
A mixed-method researcher, Dr. Howell has two thematic research areas; they’re focused on health services outcomes effectiveness and clinical interventions in cancer populations. She uses patient-reported outcome data and translates evidence into better clinical care and/or testing models of care (that is, nurse-led, tailoring CDSM models to cancer, survivorship transition care).
Her clinical research aims to understand the role of a patient’s central perception and evaluation of complex symptoms – such as fatigue, pain and breathlessness – on symptom response and behaviour to inform the development of theory and behavioural self-management intervention trials. She is currently conducting trials on remote symptom monitoring and management using mobile technology; and testing proactive cancer coaching to activate cancer patients in self-management of acute treatment toxicities.
Dr. Howell is a Senior Scientist with the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, University Health Network. She is an Affiliate Scientist with the ELLICSR Health, Wellness and Cancer Survivorship Program. Dr. Howell is a Professor (status) Faculty of Nursing and cross-appointed to U of T’s Dalla Lana School of Public Health and its Department of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation within the Faculty of Medicine.
Webinar details will be emailed to all registrants approximately 48 hours in advance.
