About me/my research:

I am a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner in the NICU at SickKids in Toronto. I have been actively involved in pain management for over 10 years. I am currently a PhD student working on neonatal pain management. My interests include post operative pain management, non pharmacological management and opioid use in NICUs.
