Honour Roll

Sally Thorne has been named director of UBC's School of Nursing for a five-year term.

An alumna, Thorne has been a faculty member since 1983. Her research interests focus on patients' experiences within existing health service delivery systems, with a particular focus on health-care communication as it affects those with cancer and chronic disease.

Former associate director for graduate programs and research at the school, she has taught a variety of graduate courses that explore applying conceptual knowledge to clinical nursing practice, critical thinking, nursing theory, and the philosophy of nursing science.

In 2001 she was awarded UBC's Killam Teaching Prize for Applied Science.
