Areas of ExpertiseKnowledge translation – health evidence; Gerotechnology; Dementia awareness and intergenerational relations; Informal caregivers and young caregivers

Kristine Newman is an associate professor at the Daphne Cockwell School of Nursing at Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada. Newman's research interests lie in three broad themes:

  1. Knowledge translation - health evidence
  2. Assistive technologies to detect agitation in persons with dementia
  3. Dementia: Awareness, intergenerational relations and caregivers

She has built a research program surrounding her expertise in gerontological nursing practice and knowledge translation. Her knowledge dissemination involves an arts-based approach that makes research accessible and impactful to various audiences. Such projects include: Spare a Thought for Dementia (T4D) campaign, external link and Embody – Experiencing Dementia through New Media, external link.

  • NSE 407: Professional Issues and Trends
  • NSE 212: Nursing Research: Quantitative Methods

Research Interests:

  • To assist knowledge users to become aware of and to use best available evidence to support health behaviours, practices and decision making through effective knowledge translation and brokering.
  • My research has evolved to address fundamental questions about aging and vulnerable populations such as youth (school aged, high school and university students) and persons with dementia and their carers.
  • The dissemination and implementation of new knowledge to healthcare providers, carers, clients, youth, or the community can provide a basis to effective and quality health care services and policies.
  • Expanding health evidence through novel innovations and approaches, such as, assistive technologies to detect agitation through multi-modal sensors, can be applied to solve problems, make better informed decisions and guide health care practices, education and delivery.
  • Use mixed-methods research design with triangulation (e.g., scoping reviews, interviews and surveys).

Spare a thought for Dementia

  • Spare a Thought for Dementia raises youth awareness of dementia and how it impacts communities. Founded by Dr. Kristine Newman at the Daphne Cockwell School of Nursing at Ryerson University, Spare a Thought for Dementia, external link aims to inspire youth to become more involved in their communities and become advocates for persons living with dementia. The project consists of an online campaign that shares stories of lived experiences of youth who are care partners for persons with dementia, and an interactive in-school awareness program that educates, challenges, and inspires youth in high school and university to become more involved in the community.
