Corinne Hart is an associate professor in the Daphne Cockwell School of Nursing at Ryerson University, where she teaches community health nursing and practice and is the academic lead for interprofessional education in the Faculty of Community Services. Her research uses critical social science approaches to both examine and theorize interrelationships between power, status and professional identity in interprofessional/interdisciplinary health care work and explore notions of professional identity in the context of client centred care. Her doctoral work used a conceptual lens of emotion management to understand the work of personal support workers who provided home support; she is now looking at how emotion management and display can be used as a methodological lens to investigate concepts such as worker agency, professional identity and real and perceived professional power and status.  Her current research, which uses emotion management as the methodological lens explores how perceptions of power and status influence participation on an interprofessional team and seeks to contribute both to both the substantive and methodological literatures. 
Corinne is chair of the University of Toronto, Centre for Critical Qualitative Health Research (CQ) Award for Methodological Excellence in a Qualitative Doctoral Dissertation committee.
