“Helping our graduate students recognize their potential to bring positive change to Canadian health care drives my passion for nursing.”
Katherine Trip’s practice and research activities focus on care of clients with complex conditions, including cancer, dementia and substance abuse. She has a keen interest in advancing patient safety through analyzing the interactions between health care delivery and safe clinical practice. In collaboration with colleagues at University Health Network, Trip investigated a safer way to prepare, check and deliver high-risk medications through independent double-checking; resulting in the use of interventions that increase the safety of medication delivery for oncology patients. She is also a member of the Centre for Innovation and Complex Care at University Health Network, the Toronto Central LHIN Community Health Education Network, and is part of an Ontario Provincial Working Group advising on the use of antiemetic during cancer therapy.
At U of T Nursing, her graduate teaching responsibilities include instruction of first- and second-year nurse practitioner students in the adult emphasis. As the Graduate Placement Co-ordinator, Trip is responsible for organizing meaningful clinical learning opportunities for all of the graduate students throughout the Faculty. As the Co-ordinator for both the Adult NP Program and the NP Anaesthesia Program, she works with colleagues to develop and maintain a learning experience that is current, comprehensive and scholarly. Trip is also actively involved in preceptor development by implementing educational opportunities for these teaching colleagues.
