Dr. Monica Parry joined Bloomberg Nursing with a solid foundation in teaching; having obtained a Master of Education with a specialization in curriculum design from Queen’s University in 1994. The focus of her teaching in the graduate program (Nurse Practitioner [NP] Field of Study) is on the understanding, mastery, retention, and acquisition of critical thinking skills based on active and cooperative learning. Monica led a project to develop 50 virtual interactive cases (VIC) to build clinical reasoning skills in a large on-line learning classroom for graduate NP students and shared results in Hong Kong and Sweden. During her 10-year tenure as the Director of the NP programs she led continual innovation and improvement and under her leadership, the NP programs expanded to make them one of the flagship graduate programs at Bloomberg Nursing.
Monica is a co-investigator in the SPOR Network focused on Diabetes and its Complications (Diabetes Action Canada), CIHR e-Health Innovation Project focused on Technology-Enabled Remote Monitoring and Self-Management, and the Gender Outcomes InterNational Group: to Further and Well-being Development (GOING-FWD). She is an active member of the Canadian Women’s Heart Health Alliance and leads a program of research focused on digital health, patient engagement/patient-oriented research, and sex/gender intersections in cardiovascular disease.
