Marjorie is an Assistant Professor at McGill University’s Ingram School of Nursing. She was previously a postdoctoral researcher at the Pragmatic Health Ethics Unit.
Marjorie completed her PhD in Nursing at McGill University, examining ethical issues related to the use of control measures (restraint and seclusion) with children aged 6-12 years old in a mental health setting. To perform this work, she developed a methodological framework for the conduct of health ethics research with children that values children’s participation in research processes, which she plans to develop further in her postdoctoral work. She has clinical experience as a nurse and brings interest in moral agency of children, especially in the context of mental health. Her research work seeks to advance knowledge and practices in child mental health to address ethical issues of high relevance to clinical care. Her research interests include concept analysis, qualitative and participatory methodologies, and ethics in the context of mental health and nursing practice.
