About the Presenter
Rebecca Stent is a Registered Nurse currently working on her thesis for a Master of Science in Nursing degree at UNBC. She previously completed her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree at Thompson Rivers University in 2011, and has been working primarily in home and community care since then. In addition to her thesis, Rebecca is currently working as a Research Assistant on a patient-oriented feasibility study, which uses hermeneutic and implementation science approaches to explore how care coordination can be improved for patients newly diagnosed with cancer in Northern British Columbia. This presentation will discuss both the study itself, as well as Rebecca’s experiences of getting involved in research within the UNBC community and how this has impacted her studies and career development.
