Clinical Research Coordinator, Trauma & Research Recovery Unit, McMaster University
Sangita is a Registered Occupational Therapist and Knowledge Translation Specialist. She wears both hats for the Trauma & Recovery Research Unit, where she works as a Clinical Research Coordinator. Prior to joining the Unit, Sangita worked in various clinical and knowledge translation roles in the hospital, community, and long-term care sectors in the Greater Toronto Area for more than 20 years. Her clinical interests are in geriatric mental health, specifically non-pharmacological care and management of the behavioural and psychiatric symptoms of dementia.
Working in clinical settings as a KT Specialist taught Sangita foundational lessons in understanding the contexts in which learning happens, creating safety for learning to happen, and appreciating the wisdom that adult learners bring to their learning experiences. She strives to incorporate these lessons in all her work.
Sangita is delighted to be part of the Trauma & Recovery Research team. She has many healthcare providers in her closest circle of friends and feels honoured to have been able to work on the Healthcare Salute project.
