Dr. Jacqueline Choiniere has a long history of involvement in health, health care, and health-care policy. Between 1993 and 2005, she was the Director of Policy and Research at the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario (RNAO), the professional organization for RNs within the province.
Since coming to York in 2008, Jacqueline’s research has focused on the influence of political, economic and social forces on the quality of care and the quality of work and life for nurses and other health care providers. Her work critically examines the influence of current reform directions on the conditions of care and the relations of care, most recently in settings where older adults receive care.
Jacqueline is currently a co-theme leader on a 7-yr SSHRC funded Major Collaborative Research Initiative, ‘Re-imagining Long-term Care Residential Care: An International Study of Promising Practices’ that is headed by Dr. Pat Armstrong. This project includes an international and interdisciplinary team of experts from six countries studying promising practices in long-term residential care.
