Evelyne Durocher
Assistant Professor, Rehabilitation Science

Dr. Durocher is an Occupational Therapist and Assistant Professor in the School of Rehabilitation Science. After graduating with her Master’s in Occupational Therapy from the University of Manitoba, Dr. Durocher worked with older adults in inpatient rehabilitation and complex continuing care. Through these experiences, she became particularly attuned to ethical complexities inherent in health and social care, and more specifically in older adult health care and social services.

Dr. Durocher’s program of research is focused on questions of occupation, autonomy, vulnerability, equity, justice, risk and safety in relation to health and social services with older adults. In her work she examines misalignments between perspectives and mandates, and the implications of these for various stakeholders. She hopes to contribute to improving the lives as well as the health and social care experiences of older adults, their family members and healthcare professionals alike.

Dr. Durocher is also interested in ethical questions in practice in countries in the global south such as Rwanda.
