GIPPEC is pleased to introduce Dr. Chloe Shaw, recipient of the 2015-16 GIPPEC Fellowship. Chloe will be coming to Toronto from the Institute for Women's Health at University College London, where she currently works as a Research Associate researching end-of-life decision making for critically ill babies on the neonatal unit. Chloe completed her PhD within the discipline of Social Psychology in 2012, and now uses the qualitative method of Conversation Analysis to study the social organization of talk in health care settings. Her research interests include communication in end-of-life care, the social organization and management of emotion in interaction and the social organization of decision making and advice giving.
While in Toronto, Chloe's research will focus on conversation analysis and, more specifically, analysis of first therapy sessions for patients and caregivers enrolled in Managing Cancer and Living Meaningfully (CALM) therapy. Chloe will begin her fellowship in September 2015 under the supervision of GIPPEC Director Dr. Gary Rodin.
