Dr. Rochelle Einboden is an Associate Professor at the School of Nursing at the University of Ottawa and Endowed Research Chair in Nursing Care of Children, Youth, and their Families, CHEO and CHEO Research Institute. Rochelle has worked with children and families as a registered nurse for over 20 years in Canada and Australia. Her research is clinically grounded and socially relevant, drawing on critical social theory and methods to explore health policy, programs and everyday nursing practices. Committed to offering new ideas, perspectives and possibilities to address health inequity and enhance social justice for children, young people and their families, Rochelle’s program of research is organised around three key priorities:
- Informing and shaping social understandings of children, families and violence
- Methodological innovation to support analyses of practices, discourse, power and social positioning
- Development of nurse-led equity-oriented care and policy across health and community services and settings.
Rochelle holds an honorary appointment at the University of Sydney and an adjunct appointment at Western Sydney University. She is also an Associate Editor of Health: An Interdisciplinary Journal for the Social Study of Health, Illness and Medicine, a peer-reviewed international journal that focuses on applications of critical social ideas and theories to health and health care disciplines and practices.
Professor Einboden is accepting new students for thesis supervision.
