Kelly Lackie, PhD, RN
In 1997, after years as a critical care nurse, Kelly brought her powerful work ethic and valuable experience to us. She has many roles at the RNPDC, but her focus and passion is in interprofessional education for collaborative patient-centred practice. Kelly also offers a practice-based shrewdness to project partner/manager roles in both provincial and federal research projects and committees/review panels. She has a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, a Masters in Nursing, and most recently, a PhD in Nursing from Dalhousie University. Kelly’s research examines the impact of interprofessional collaboration on health care provider productivity. Kelly is also a research trainee at the WHO/PAHO Collaborating Centre on Health Workforce Planning & Research and holds an Adjunct Professor position in the School of Nursing, Dalhousie University. She is a member of the Canadian Interprofessional Health Collaborative, the UK Centre for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education, Sigma Theta Tau International.
