On November 7, 2018, Ms. Patricia (Patti) J Leake convocated and received her MSc Degree from the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Toronto. Her thesis, titled “Nursing, power and gender in interprofessional collaboration,” had been accepted by her committee and external appraiser only a few months earlier. It explores the presence of nursing in the literature on interprofessional collaboration, as well as the nature of this presence. In the photos below, she is seen with Dr. Paradis at the University of Toronto’s fall convocation, and afterwards with her degree in a family celebration.
A first article from her thesis should be submitted for publication early in 2019.
Ms. Leake will put her interest in the health professions and in education in her new role at the Michener Institute, where she will be working with Dr. Nikki Woods and Dr. Ann Russell.
