Tammy Son, PhD candidate
Tammy Son is a doctoral candidate in the Ingram School of Nursing at McGill University. In her dissertation project, she is adapting coping skills manuals (developed by Dr. Sylvie Lambert and her team) for outpatient hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) patients and caregivers. Tammy’s research interests have developed from her 12 years of experience as a clinical nurse and an acute care nurse practitioner on the Adult HSCT service at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) in New York City, as well as her education at New York University (BS Nursing, MS Adult Acute Care Nurse Practitioner). She has worked on a collaborative research project with the Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences unit at MSKCC and Department of Nursing Research at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center in Bethesda, MD that focused on allogeneic HSCT caregiver burden. Her doctoral work is supported by the MSKCC Department of Survivorship and Supportive Care.
