Dr. Michelle Nelson, PhD

Dr. Michelle L. A. Nelson is a Scientist in the Bridgepoint Collaboratory for Research and Innovation in the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute (LTRI) at Sinai Health System and an Assistant Professor in the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation at the University of Toronto. Michelle leads international research teams focused on rehabilitation and community reintegration for people with complex care needs. She is particularly interested in the role and contributions of volunteers and the voluntary sector in integrated care, transitions from hospital to home, and intersectoral collaboration. Since 2012, she has secured over $5.8 million CDN in research funding as a research lead, principal or co-principal investigator. Her work focused on ‘Voluncaring’ has garnered international attention. She chairs several international working groups and committees in the area, and is a sought after speaker. As a result of this work, she was shortlisted for the 2020/2021 Harkness Fellowship, and has been invited to join the Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement Policy Circle. In 2020, Michelle was appointed the inaugural Chief Knowledge and Innovation Officer for March of Dimes Canada (MODC). Having leadership roles in both research and practice environments creates opportunities for practice informed research, and leverages these insights to advance the design and implementation of evidence informed transitions and community reintegration services.
