1) Discuss the health effects of double duty caregiving (nurses who provide care at home and at work)

Dr. Catherine Ward-Griffin, R.N., Ph.D., is a Professor at Western Ontario. Her program of research examines the negotiation of care boundaries and subsequent health effects of care work in light of the social, economic, and political context that promote or undermine health. She is particularly interested in understanding how the social determinants of health, such as gender and age relations, intersect and shape the health of women and men as they age. Using primarily a critical lens, Dr. Ward-Griffin has conducted qualitative and quantitative studies that investigate the provision and intersections of health care and family care work, and the translation of knowledge into practice and policy.
