Kateryna Metersky completed her PhD in nursing at the University of Western Ontario in 2020. Both of her previous degrees (BScN and MN) are from the Daphne Cockwell School of Nursing.
Metersky’s PhD work focused on the role of the patient with an interprofessional team in the primary care setting. She developed a framework to help support patients in their role development by identifying the required processes and conditions that need to be in place for successful role enactment to occur. Metersky is currently expanding this work through developing and evaluating a Patient Roles on Interprofessional Teams (PRITS) scale.
Metersky’s program of research is entitled 'Empowerment and Self-Care Program of Research and Scholarship.' As part of this her research interests include patient-centered care, patient self-care management, vulnerable populations and care participation, and nursing education. She has expertise with qualitative research methods as well as systematic and scoping reviews.
