Kelly Lackie PhD RN is an Assistant Professor (seconded) at the School of Nursing. Kelly’s expertise is in the development, design, and facilitation of interprofessional health education (IPHE) learning experiences and related research. With over a decade-long career in the field of IPHE, Kelly has created inclusive and strategic relationships, both internal and external to the university community, thereby laying the foundation for the creation of shared IP learning priorities and outcomes. Proficiency in adult education, simulation, and debriefing is evidenced by a teaching portfolio that includes undergraduate, graduate, and post-licensure continuing education. Her ongoing membership with the WHO/PAHO Collaborating Centre on Health Workforce Planning and Research and the Centre for Transformative Nursing and Health Research provides the foundation for preparation of students to become leaders who will contribute to health system transformation. Kelly’s areas of research include interprofessional collaboration and productivity, IP simulation-based education, instructional and assessment rubric design, competency assessment, IP learning, and evidence-based decision-making. Kelly will continue to make valuable contributions to the IPHE and practice-setting communities provincially, nationally, and internationally and will take leadership in building scholarship in IPHE and simulation-based learning to lead the complex thinking in these fields.
